From Gareth Bale to Robert Lewandowski: These 4 footballers became muscular hunks out of nowhere
Footballers are some of the strongest athletes in the world of sports. While some have made names solely based on their gameplay, some have gained popularity even for the athletic build and muscular body. However, some have also become husky suddenly.
As far as footballers are concerned, they are indeed among the strongest athletes in the sporting world. Besides their prolific gameplay, they also need to maintain a proper physique that aids them in their gameplay, as it involves intense running.
However, some of them have gained popularity primarily for their body build rather than their gameplay. Nonetheless, some have managed to achieve the same of late, putting on some muscles out of nowhere. Consequently, we take a look at four of the top such footballers.
The Scottish defender who is lighting up Manchester United began his career at Old Trafford since he was barely five years old. Owing to his dedication, he has transformed his body over the years to present a perfect athletic build. His current physique happens to be a well-toned body, along with the flat abs. Furthermore, his sound ability to defend and run up to provide valuable assists have made him a true asset at the club.
The former Manchester United and Portuguese winger might not be a superstar footballer right now. However, he has made a tremendous name for himself over the years. While he was a superstar at Old Trafford for his brilliant gameplay and attacking skills, he was not a hunk. Nonetheless, as he is having a stint in the United States of America, to make himself presentable for Florida's beaches, he has put on the perfect muscles and shape, besides continuing to have a decent career with Orlando City in the Major League Soccer.
The Polish striker has become a sensation in Bundesliga, having made a name for himself initially at Borussia Dortmund, while he has just nailed it at Bayern Munich. The 32-year-old was a promising talent right from the start, as he majorly focused on his gameplay initially. Although he was not muscular initially, he maintained an athletic figure. Nonetheless, as the physical challenges have increased at Munich, he has put on some muscles and is absolutely sturdy now.
The Welsh striker seems to be on a downward spiral, unfortunately. While he gained a tremendous name for himself initially at Tottenham Hotspur for his lethal striking abilities and pace, he somewhat bettered it at Real Madrid. Nonetheless, a string of injuries seems to have taken a toll on his performance. However, in a bid to improve his fitness, he appears to have put some muscles, especially in his leg, on his thigh, which looks unconditionally, killer.
