Simon Mignolet


The Liverpool goalkeeper may at times not seem intelligent, especially when coming for crosses but the Belgian international is academically very clever.

Mignolet not only has a Degree in Law and Political Science but he can speak four languages; English, French, Dutch and German.

Juan Mata


The clever playmaker has intelligence on the field and off it.

Once his playing days are over, the Manchester United midfielder should find punditry rather easy having studied Journalism in Madrid.

He also has a degree in Sports Science and Finance.
