2. Peter Schmeichel
5 players who had other jobs before football
We all know Peter Schmeichel to be one of the best goalkeepers ever to have graced the Premier League. The Dane, however, tried out a number of different jobs before focussing on football as a full-time career.

To begin with, Schmeichel worked in the textiles industry but quit his job due to job security concerns. Later, he worked as a cleaner in care homes before going on to become a sales manager in the World Wildlife Fund.

It was only when he joined Beondby did Schmeichel seriously considered football as a career option. 15 years later as a Manchester United goalkeeper, it’s safe to say he didn’t make a bad choice.
