The connection between football players and their fans does not end in the stadium after games. Players have taken it upon themselves to extend that tie to their fans by posting regularly on social media. Players have also channeled their comedic character into social by uploading premium stories and jokes that show their humor when they are not scoring goals, saving penalties, and committing fouls on the pitch. Most of the players have also gone on to savage referees who ruin games by granting favor to the opposition by posting banters hilariously. Some players have even used the platform by apologizing to fans when they lose important matches. These players are active on social media and you can be sure to help yourself with humor when catching the bus to work on a busy morning.

Benjamin Mendy

The Manchester City and France International is a huge lover of the gram and we can confirm that his presence on the picture and video platform has been important to the citizens even when he was on the treatment table for a recurring ankle injury. The player has gone on to receive two premier league medals and won the world cup even when he was inactive on the pitch during the tournaments. The left back enjoys a healthy and comic friendship with City teammate Bernado Silva and Paul Pogba, his fellow compatriot during international duty. His instagram stories are always funny and he always posts his pictures in stylish fits and sneakers.   

Paul Pogba

One of the most expensive players ever spends his time on Instagram even when he is injured. The tall midfielder enjoys his time in exotic locations and Dubai. You can see him spending time among the musicians and other royalties. Paul Pogba also posts videos of himself in intense workout sessions. Other times he is dancing at parties, clubs and weddings. Infact, Paul is a very good dancer!

Cristiano Ronaldo

Football lovers have seen his career progress from a 17-year old that cried when his nation lost the Euro 2004 to a man who has won it all and started a big family and is about to retire. Ronaldo owns a fleet of cars, houses and two jets and that is where his flamboyance on social media starts. It continues from the page where he is a daredevil fitness geek who pushes his limits and maybe that has been the reason for his longevity as a football player. 


If Neymar isn’t checking out diamond chains and Rolexes at Icebox in Atlanta, he is in Brazil throwing parties for family and friends. He never misses a chance to do the samba steps. Neymar has gotten into the bad books of the press and his managers for sneaking his phone to the bench during games. 

Mario Balotelli

Mario is obsessed with snapchat and Instagram and missed training at Man City because he was at one club or the other prior to the mornings of training. Mario has even gone live when celebrating a goal at Nice. 

Alexander Iwobi

The former Arsenal man enjoys quality time on snapchat with his teammates even when he is on international duty with the Super eagles.
