Every year, footballers from all over the world delight us with insights into their Christmas celebrations.
The well-trained professional athletes are not only model athletes, but also show us how to celebrate the holy night properly.
We start with Germany's national goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, who broke his lower leg during a skiing holiday after losing the World Cup.
Bayern Munich will have to do without their regular keeper for the rest of the season, but luckily Neuer will not have to do without his family at Christmas.
On crutches and all in white, he wishes us a Merry Christmas.
Okay, Philipp Lahm is no longer an active player, but he is tournament director of the European Championship 2024 in Germany.
This year he and his wife Claudia show us their most beautiful Christmas sweaters.
Jamial Musiala, young star and hope for Bayern and the national team, still has to learn how to laboriously arrange spontaneous photos.
He almost looks like an ordinary teenager sharing a holiday photo with his loved ones.
Kai Havertz does it better.
The Chelsea professional was photographed with his girlfriend Sophia Weber and three dogs on (or behind) a cozy blanket.
This is how comfort works!!!
Marco Reus appears with his wife Scarlett and their daughter.
The palm trees suggest that he is not celebrating Christmas in Dortmund, the lighting that the Reus family does not have to save electricity.
Bastian Schweinsteiger is also no longer active as a professional, but accompanied us through the World Cup in Qatar together with Esther Sedlaczek for ARD.
Some observers see the two as a similar dream duo as Gerhard Delling and Günter Netzer once were.
Here you can see »Schweini« together with his wife, the former professional tennis player Ana Ivanović.
At Salah, the family wears a matching look at Christmas.
In addition, the Liverpool professional has a blue decorated tree this year.
Certainly one of the least posed photos in our collection.
When I was 22 years old, I would have liked to wear pajamas all day at Christmas, but I didn't dare.
Erling Haaland is braver there.
Robert Lewandowski finally scored his first World Cup goal for Poland in Qatar.
Here we see the star striker of FC Barcelona with his wife Anna and their two daughters in a spontaneous snapshot.
Zlatan Ibrahimović is also Zlatan Ibrahimović at Christmas.
