Tremendously Funny Soccer Quotes That Will Make You Chuckle Hard

Funny soccer quote by Gary Lineker
Almost all of us idolize some or the other soccer player, whether he is the star of his national team or the most prolific goal scorer of his club. But there are also some interesting things that these stars say off the field, which may turn out unintentionally funny!
Did You Know?
Soccer is the most widely played, watched, and followed sport in the world, with a fan base touching 3.5 billion. In 1872, England and Scotland had the privilege of clashing in the first ever international fixture. This match was witnessed by a little less than five thousand spectators, and ended in a draw.

But these idols are human too, and sometimes they say things that are actually quite funny. Here are some of the best from the rest.
