And just when soccer players from around the world thought they were on vacation…fans caught up with them in relaxing and off the pitch while some players may need to watch their backs with big stars showing up at their clubs.
Matt Damon is on a worldwide tour promoting the fifth Bourne spy film, ‘Jason Bourne’, and at his Madrid stop took a moment to show his allegiance to the city’s top club, Atletico Madrid. We don’t know if it is his favorite club in town but @atleticodemadrid wasted no time getting him a jersey. Rihanna is learning, like many music stars, that the way to the locals’ hearts is through their local football club. She is definitely in style and on point with the recently launched 2016/17 Juventus away jersey and showing it off @juventus. Odell Beckham Jr was not going to settle merely for a jersey. He pulled on the full kit of Bayern Munich and took to the field with David Alaba on his Instagram @iam_objxiii. Hot-off winning the NBA title, Lebron James has offered to help his club, Liverpool, on their U.S. tour. Defender Dejan Lovren is happy to let the power forward borrow his #6 getting it ready @dejanlovren06. Restaurateur Bobby Chinn ran into soccer stars Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba in Las Vegas but apparently did not know who they were until he asked Pogba’s wife, ‘do you know who he is?’ She replied, ‘He’s my husband!’ Chinn got a picture of Michael Hosking and Pogba @bobbychinn
What great soccer Instagram posts did you see this week?
