Happy Mother's Day! 6 Footballers Who Have Definitely Got Something Nice Planned for Their Mums

It's Mother's Day in the United Kingdom today and even the world's best footballers will be ringing up florists and rushing out to their local petrol stations to get that last minute gift. Yet, which football players will have prepared in advance the perfect Mother's Day present for their beloved mums? Here are six footballers who have definitely got something nice planned... Without any sort of confirmation whatsoever in regards to James Milner's relationship with his mum, the Liverpool vice...

Eric Dier

The Tottenham Hotspur man has often spoken about his family's move to Portugal at a young age and their constant support as he rose through the ranks at Sporting Lisbon, before securing a move to the Premier League.


Despite being quite tenacious on the pitch, the England regular seems like the perfect child off it. It would not be surprising to hear of the 23-year-old organising a personalised plaque awarded to Mrs Dier for being the world's best mum. 

Paul Pogba

The world's most expensive footballer of all time may be criticised for spending too much time practising his dabs or getting his haircut, but his insistence on being a good son to Mrs Pogba can never be downplayed.


Manchester United's French superstar even took his old 'ma to the 2015 Ballon d'Or ceremony in Zurich, where he waltzed her down the red carpet as they both wore outrageous outfits. 

John Terry

John Terry has one of the worst reputations in football. From betraying former teammate Wayne Bridge to allegedly racially abusing Anton Ferdinand and getting stripped of the England captaincy as a result, it's safe to say that the Chelsea skipper is a bit of a bad boy.


However, for all his flaws, Terry is aware of the importance of family and is likely to have gone all out for Mrs Terry. Whether the 36-year-old's mum was gifted a "full kit w***er starter pack" is another matter though... 

Raheem Sterling

Raheem Sterling has been through a lot with his mother. The pair emigrated to the UK from Jamaica when the Manchester City winger was just five years old and they then had to deal with his father's murder a few years later.


As the England international grew up to become one of the most sought after teenagers in world football, he made sure to bring his mum along for the ride and having already bought her a mansion, it might be tough to top that today. 

Cristiano Ronaldo

Another player who may be spoken about in a bad light because of his self-indulgence, yet Cristiano Ronaldo always puts himself second when it comes to his dear mother Maria, who is often seen alongside her beaming son.


The four time Ballon d'Or winner even brought his mum along for his latest contract renewal, with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez awkwardly posing next to the mother and son duo.

James Milner

Without any sort of confirmation whatsoever in regards to James Milner's relationship with his mum, the Liverpool vice captain's amusing reputation as the most sensible man in football extends to Mother's Day too.


The former England international probably spent all of last night making the most out of his arts and crafts box at home, which he used to give Mrs Milner the perfect Happy Mother's Day card.
