Beginning a professional career at a very young age, most footballers give up academic education after school. However, there have been several renowned players over the years, who have gone on to complete a certain degree of education.
Here is a list of 3 highly educated football players in the world:
Japanese international Yuto Nagatomo, who too had a seven-year stint at Inter Milan is among the most educated footballers in the world. The 34-year-old has completed degree education in economics from the University of Meiji. Surprised yet? Nagatomo is also the author of two books on modern economics.
Liverpool player Duncan Watmore is a Premier League rarity, one of only two English players to have earned his first-class honours degree. In 2015 the then 21-year-old acquired an economics and business management diploma from Newcastle University Business School following graduation with a Bachelor in 2013.
Hislop earned a scholarship to play college soccer at Howard University in the United States and graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. The former English shot-stopper is now working as a commentator for ESPN FC/ESPN UK.
