Indian football players enjoy a huge fan-following on social media and away from it and some of them are massive fashion icons. The modern era allows these public figures to interact with and influence their fans more efficiently. Footballers love to indulge in luxuries and comforts when they are not roughing it out on the pitch. Their careers are short and there is always a risk of premature end due to injuries.
