Wristwatches of Premier League

What does Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Yaya Toure, Jose Mourinho and the rest of the Premier League footballers wear around their wrist?

One thing is certain when it comes to English Premier League footballers, money is not an issue. Many of them are sponsored and have their own lines with highly reputable brands such as Jose Mourinho for Hublot. Being a football fan and watch geek myself, this cant get any better! I was curious about what I would find out there, and trust me, there are a couple of shockers. I would like to thank Celebwatchspotter on Instagram for helping me with my search, if you’re on instagram and like celebrity watches, his the one to follow!

Let me get you started with the man himself, as he likes to refer to himself ‘The Special One’ really is special with his choice of watches. Jose Mourinho currently managing Manchester United is an Hublot Ambassador, so it should come as no surprise he rocks an Hublot around his wrist.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, The living legend of football, currently playing for Manchester United. Yes I’m a little biased as we’re both Swedish, but his still the king of football. At the age of 35, with 10 league champion titles, no one can argue against that. He is not only one of the best footballers still active, he also has a fine taste for fine things. I remember an interview with a young Ibrahimovic, he got asked what car he wishes to drive if he would become successful, his answer was to drive a Lamborghini and have “Toys for Boys” as plates, I still don’t know if he granted that wish, but without a doubt, he has some toys for his wrist I’d love to get my hands on! So lets have a look at what Zlatans wristwatches look like.

I have to say, there is very little pictures around the internet with Zlatan wearing watches. Which is really odd, any other google search for a big celebrity has massive results on that end. Well, one thing is certain, Zlatan is a true Rolex fan!

Paul Pogba is another very interesting player on the field. The French midfielder now playing for Manchester United have recently picked up a lot of fame due to him being the worlds most expensive transfer. Like any other Premier League Footballer, he knows how to treat himself. Pauls taste in watches are certainly way above my budget. Lets have a look what Pog’ got on his wrist.

I kind of feel bad when I thought I’d keep Frank Lampard out of this list, as he is not active anymore. I just couldn’t do that to myself nor to Frank as I know how important this is for him! Frank happens to be a big watch geek himself, he is frequently seen with Patek Philippe’s of all sort around his wrist. So Ill make an honorary mention for the old Chelsea top goalscorer.

Moving on from one EPL legend to another! The former Liverpool FC captain, Steven Gerrard also has some spare love for wristwatches. I guess, that’s the thing, once you retire from the Premier League, you get into watches, right? It sure seem that way to me. Lets have a look at Steven Gerrard’s beautiful timepieces.

Next man on this list, is the former Real Madrid midfielder who currently plays for Arsenal, Mesut Özil. The German is no exception from his other Premier League colleagues, he too knows how to rock a timepiece.
