Former Real Madrid star and Cristiano Ronaldo’s best pal, Fabio Coentrao has gone into the fishing business.
Coentrao aged 33, retired after spending last season at Portuguese side Rio Ave, and he has now gone back to his childhood passion of fishing.
Coentrao won 13 trophies during a successful playing career, with his best days coming at Madrid where two La Liga titles and two Champions League honours came his way.
The Portuguese star struck up a friendship with five-time Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldo, 36, during his time in the Spanish capital and they are both widely regarded as best friends on and off the pitch.
Sea fishing is a profession that runs in Coentrao’s family. He has now bought fishing boats and is now into full time fishing.
