None of these two is (currently) a football player but they're two of the most famous characters in the world of football nonetheless.

Yeah I know he learned Catalan during his time as assistant manager in Barcelona (oh the irony!) in the late 90s but I couldn't find any video of him speaking it. Also I wonder how much he can still speak considering he has had virtually no reason to do it in the last almost 15 years. Even during his period in Madrid he used exclusively Spanish despite being asked once or twice to answer questions in Catalan.
