Alcohol use is a common practice in practically every community as a means of sociability. Consumption of hard cocktails is a long-standing tradition that stretches back generations.
However, drinking this alcoholic beverage has never been a necessity for everyone, and after witnessing how many football careers have been ruined as a result of it, a number of athletes have chosen to abstain.
In light of this, take a look at some of the best players who are said to abstain from alcohol.
1- Paul Pogba
Pogba stated on Twitter in 2017 that he does not drink alcohol, which explains why during his interview at the 2020 UEFA Euro, he had to move a bottle of Heneiken away from the camera.
2- Cristiano Ronaldo
Because of his continuous time in the gym and the food choices he makes to keep his body, the Manchester United talisman appears to have led a health-conscious life.
On the other hand, his refusal to drink alcoholic beverages stems from a personal experience.
As previously stated, Ronaldo’s father died of alcoholism, and he had to make a bargain with his older brother Hugo before he was eventually able to break free from the addiction.
As a result, the 37-year-old was determined not to eat any of the counterproductive beverages that have enabled him in his ascension to the status of a haughty sports celebrity.
3- Sadio Mane
Mane told the Daily Mail in 2016 that he was “quite happy” with his new job.
“I’m not a big drinker, and my faith is very important to me.
I Always Pray Five Times A Day And Respect The Islamic Laws. ” Mane is a devout Muslim, and one of his religious prohibitions is the consumption of alcoholic beverages.”
4- Mohamed Salah
The Egyptian, like Mane, is a devout Muslim who follows Islamic law to the letter.
Salah is aware of the need for proper nutrition, and he claimed in a December interview that he does not consider or desire to try alcohol.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp recently confirmed to Goal that both Mane and Salah do not drink alcohol, which is why they were able to recuperate swiftly and rejoin the squad following their participation in the just concluded African Cup of Nations.
