Football is the undisputed world’s game with celebrities frequently showing their support and even taking ownership in various clubs.
Unlike the rest of us, celebrities can support as many as teams as they like and not be condemned for being bandwagoners or supporting the enemy. They get the perks of meeting players without attaching themselves to any given team.
But a few celebs have pledged their support for clubs.
7 celebs you didn’t know that liked football:
Will Ferrell – Chelsea
Ferrell is a huge football fan and part owner of new MLS side, LAFC. But the actor supports a shit side in world football.
Kobe Bryant – FC Barcelona
The GOAT grew up in Italy playing soccer when he was younger, so he's always been a fan. He was a big fan of Ronaldinho and has since been a Barcelona fan.
Paris Hilton – Santos Laguna
A recent addition to football fandom. Probably likes the team because it's the closest to her drug dealer's house or she's shagging someone on the team.
Sylvester Stallone – Everton
Everton is a team you can't really hate, unless you're a Liverpool fan. Can't be too disappointed by Stallone. No wonder Creed fought at Goodison Park.
Samuel L Jackson – Liverpool
The biggest baller unfortunately supports Liverpool. Definitely a let down.
Steve Nash – Tottenham
Great basketball player, but he really picked a shit football club.
Russell Brand – West Ham
The actor is a huge supporter of the West London side. Brand also has a habit of kissing West Ham managers after big wins.
These are the select few we can respect, unless they’re Tottenham fans and then they can’t be trusted. But being celeb is the life, you can support who you want when you want and not be too heavily criticized for it.
Whether they actually know anything about footy is debatable, but it’s the effort that counts, right?
