Top 10 Football Players you did not know were still playing

Once hailed as the next Brazilian superstar, former Real Madrid and Manchester City striker Robinho left Atletico Mineiro in 2017 for Turkish Super Lig side Sivasspor.
After a successful season there, he is now having less success at Istanbul Basaksehir, where he has managed just four goals in 30 matches.

Roque Santa Cruz
The ex-Manchester City and Blackburn frontman returned to his boyhood club Olimpia in 2016 and steered them to the the Paraguayan title.
The 38-year-old, who broke onto the scene as a youngster at Bayern Munich, has over 200 goals in a career lasting more than two decades.

Eric Djemba-Djemba
The Cameroon midfielder played 31 Premier League matches for Man United and Aston Villa from 2003-2007 before he was shipped off to Burnley on loan.
Nine clubs later, yes NINE, Djemba-Djemba is currently plying his trade for Swiss side Vallorbe-Ballaigues.
Mario Gomez
The German striker was once considered one of the very best on the planet during his time with Bayern Munich.
And he returned to his boyhood side Stuttgart after leaving Wolfsburg in 2018 and has been a success in the 2.Bundesliga..

The Brazilian, who moved to Man City in 2008 and scored just one league goal for the club, has somehow only just turned 33.
He is enjoying perhaps the most successful form of his career right now, with 30 goals in 65 appearances for Japanese side Nagoy

Milan Baros
The former Liverpool ace, who scooped the Golden Boot at Euro 2004, is back in his native Czech Republic playing for Baník Ostrava.
The 38-year-old has a commendable record of 15 goals in 44 appearances since signing for the club in 2017.

Salomon Kalou
The Champions League-winning forward joined Hertha in 2014 and he’s gone on to make over 150 appearances for the German side.
A reliable servant for Chelsea, Kalou has netted more than 50 goals for Hertha but played only seven times this season.
Former manager Jurgen Klinsmann banished him from the first-team earlier this term and Kalou may fare better under new boss Alexander Nouri when football resumes.

Maxi Rodriguez
The Argentine winger netted 15 goals in 57 games for Liverpool and he is now plying his trade with boyhood club Newell’s Old Boys for the third time in his career.
He is having a decent season too, with nine goals so far this campaign before he surely hangs up is boots.

Claudio Pizarro
Incredibly, the Peruvian striker is still playing for Werder Bremen – aged 41!.
It’s not often you see strikers continue at such an age, but respect to the former Chelsea and Bayern frontman who has already announced he will retire at the end of the season.

Michael Essien
Now here is a Premier League legend.
Ex-Ghana international Essien is still strutting his stuff at 37 and has recently played crucial roles for Panathinaikos and Indonesian side Persib Banding.
He is currently starring for Azerbaijani side Sabail, who were only formed four years ago.
