Footballers do different types of training during the day: weight training, fitness training or just basic training with a football. Most footballers train for about 5 hours a day.
Some footballers get stressed because in season they train nearly everyday, have much pressure from the fans, paparazzi and magazines. They barely have any time to be with their families.
Fottballers have to train everyday, even if it's just for a while. But they have to stay fit and healthy.
Some footballers when they retire , work for the club they played for. They coach the goalkeeper or train them for their free kicks.Others retire and lead a retired life or be football pundits.
