The Christmas holidays are coming and Betway wants to wish a Merry Christmas from the hand of some footballers from the best leagues in the world, that tell how they live their Christmas and the many curiosities that each one of them has about these dates.
Like the rest of humanity, footballers in the major soccer leagues also celebrate Christmas with their family and loved ones, although this year may be different. Each of them enjoys this special time in their own way, and discover their most human side by telling how they live these days so marked on the calendar.
Some players from the best leagues in the world tell us about their Christmas
The footballers who tell us how they live Christmas are : Cafu Phete (Belenenses) of the Liga NOS, Robert Snodgrass (West Ham United) Premier League, Andrés Guardado (Real Betis) and Rodrigo Ely (Deportivo Alavés) both from LaLiga Santander, and Jonathan Silva (Leganés) of LaLiga SmartBank.
Cafú Phete tells us with which footballer, retired or not, would be the one you would like to spend these holidays with. Andrés Guarded discovers to his followers which is the most typical Christmas food in Mexico and Rodrigo Ely reveals to us which is the Christmas carol that sounds the most at home this Christmas.
Players such as Robert Snodgrass or Rodrigo Ely explain to us the difficulties that an elite footballer has at this time of year to watch his diet in the face of the so common 'binge eating'. The temptation of typical Christmas dishes and sweets, the traditions of gathering around a table full of food and copious dinners are a great enemy of elite athletes, who have to learn to enjoy Christmas meals knowing how to keep the line. A willpower that would not be available to many of us.
This season, unlike others, LaLiga Santander will continue to be played during Christmas. For calendar reasons, Spanish football cannot stop and thus joins the Premier League's centuries-old tradition of having league matches this Christmas season with the well-known ‘Boxing Day‘ included. Thus, the footballers of our league will live these dates in a different way, with one foot in the field and the other at home with their families.
Watch this funny video and enjoy everything these great footballers tell us! With this, the house of sports bets Betway wishes you a merry Christmas!
