Fabio is a former footballer who is now a manager. The Italian used to play as a center back and was a fantastic player.
His ball handling was exceptional, and he played for Juventus, Parma, and Real Madrid. In 2006, he was a member of the Italian team that won the FIFA World Cup. He is now the coach of China's national team.
It used to be that serving in the army was a requirement for every Italian citizen. As a result, Cannavaro was drafted. He experienced challenges, but he managed to balance his football career with his military service admirably.
2. Eric Cantona
This list also includes the Manchester United legend, who is now an actor. He was a fantastic Forwarder back in the day. His crosses, passes, and finishes were all incredible.
Eric was a member of the French military during his youth and excelled at it.
3. Heung-Min Son
Son Heung-Min, one of the best Asian players of all time, is also on this list. Since 2015, the South Korean forward has been a revelation for Tottenham Hotspur.
Hotspur's performance has skyrocketed thanks to his remarkable pace and dribbling talents.
Despite the fact that Son is the captain of the North Korean national team, the administration simply wanted to be fair, so he allowed the Tottenham star to serve in the army for three weeks rather than the full 18 months required by others.
4. Mohamed Salah
Mohamed Salah is perhaps the finest player in the world right now, and the Egyptian international has done nothing but elevate Liverpool's performance.
Salah's ball control and dribbling ability are incredible, and it's always a treat to watch him on the pitch. Salah is well-known for his camouflaged suit, and he has also served in the military for his country.
In the past, he had trouble balancing his football career with his military service. When he was at Chelsea, he returned home to do his military service.
