Footballer learned piano and guitar
A former Norwich City player broadened his mind during his 16-year football career by learning to play piano and guitar.
Paul McVeigh revealed to Norwich Evening News 24 that he spent his spare time off the pitch mastering the musical instruments because he enjoys learning new things.
But strumming an electric guitar and playing the piano were not the only activities he enjoyed.
The 32-year-old, who recently left Carrow Road to become a motivational guru, revealed he also learned Italian in his downtime.
He said: "The expectation of a footballer is not great [and] I've been on the receiving end of assumptions so many times.Â
People say 'you're clever' because you read a book."
One fellow footballer who has not had as much enjoyment out of music is Sunderland star Andy Reid.
