What does a footballer do

Players who never played in the top flight and plied their trade in the lower leagues will nearly all find the need to continue working with many retraining into a variety of careers once their football careers are over. You can find former professional footballers in a whole range of jobs, from bakers, postmen and builders, to accountants, fitness trainers and salesmen. Football as a career is highly competitive. Only a minority of aspiring young hopefuls secure paid employment with a league club and only a few amateur clubs offer salaried positions.
