Have you checked out the first part of this article? If you haven’t, you can do so here. Now, here are a few more footballers who underwent crazy body transformations!

1.Alexis Sanchez

Sanchez started working out in 2008 when he left South America for Italy. An Italian journalist, Pietro Oleotto revealed that “In his first season, Alexis was skinny and stayed on the right-wing a lot, the physicality in the penalty area was too much for him. So, he began improving his body and they built him an ad-hoc gym. He worked out for two hours a day after training. I remember seeing him halfway through pre-season training camp and being shocked by how much muscle he had put on”.
