Coming soon (ish) to a race track near you

What is the normal career path for retired footballers?

In England it normally goes one of two ways: work on a management licence and join (insert former club here) as an assistant or go on to dominate the airwaves as a pundit.

Last week Anna Lewandowska, the Bayern man’s wife, said he ‘dreams’ of ending his career in Los Angeles.

We are excited for the thought of Lewandowski racing in Nascar.

Vroom, vroom.
