7 Footballers And One Random DJ Hanging Out In Dubai This Week

See the 7 footballers we spotted this week as they came in thick and fast once the season ended...oh and Mr Thicke popped over too.


Ryan Giggs

We are used to seeing gigs in bars across Dubai but this week Mr. Giggs himself was spotted in Lock Stock sporting a cheesy grin and some decent sun exposure.

Diego Maradona

Known by many for the infamous Hand of God goal, Maradona plied his trade at a sport that actually intentionally uses your hands this week - taking on Miguel Angel Rodriguez at squash at the PSA Dubai World Series Finals.

Adnan Januzaj

Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj was spotted enjoying the close season on one of our fine beaches. His manager may have asked him to pull his socks up a few times this season...he's got half the message with some impressive short rolling here.

Wilfried Zaha

How do you deal with losing a cup final? Easy: head to Dubai, get in a boat and cruise around the marina - simple.

It's lit 🌎 @longlive_studios

Jesse Lingard

Turns out that in order to unwind after scoring the winning goal in a cup final involves a very similar methodology.

Dubai 🔥

Aaron Cresswell

Yet another footballer enjoying his time out here in Dubai, Cress-well done to you too Aaron.

Leigh Griffiths

Scotland's Premier League Player of the Year also decided that after a season of hard work only Dubai would suffice.

And finally...a non-footballer

Robin Thicke

It wasn't just footballers coming in thicke and fast this week as Robin Thicke was in town.

Here he is enjoying the Aquarium before heading to Nobu...as long as there were no Blurred Lines and he didn't eat fish in the acquarium then we are sure he had a great time.

Aquarium at Atlantis in Dubai. Next up Nobu!

One of the best ways to Feel Good in Dubai is to get yourself on a wake board and hold on tight, as Robin did...

Still holding!

The Evolution of Robin Thicke during his time in Dubai is outlined perfectly below as he sums up his time:

Waterskiing, kneeboarding, beach volleyball, Atlantis water slides. Next up... Sing a few songs at Eden beach party.

Not sure we'd be able to sing after all that so we have to Give it 2 U Robin well done.
