We have seen a lot of talented football stars compete at the FIFA World Cup. Their successful football careers truly made them set for life that we bet only an arrest or scandal can stain the hard work they’ve done in their respective careers. Some players gained so many fans because of how good they played on the field while others have become respectable football coaches after they decided to retire. Here are some of the most famous World Cup legends and let’s see what they’ve been up to these days.
Pelé – Brazil
Pelé is referred to by many as one of the best football players in history. He was only 16 years old when he became a part of the national team of Brazil and he was able to win the FIFA World Cup thrice. He had three marriages that all ended in a divorce and a number of children from different affairs.
Diego Maradona – Argentina
Along with Pelé, former Argentina national team member Diego Maradona holds the title of FIFA Player of the 20th Century. He was the captain of his country’s national team when they won the World Cup back in 1986. He had a drug and alcohol addiction in the past but was fortunately saved by going to rehab. Reportedly, he needed a tax attorney since, in 2009, it was reported that he owed the Italian government quite a lot.
Zinedine Zidane – France
Zinedine Zidane used to play for the French national team and he helped the team win the World Cup back in 1998. He was a talented player who was able to bag the title of FIFA World Player of the Year thrice. Even after retiring, Zidane was able to grow an impressive portfolio by serving as a football coach. He’s been happily married since 1994 so it looks like he wouldn’t be seeing any divorce law firms ever.
