Even World Cup winners need new challenges

Ex-Chelsea defender Frank Leboeuf has got a new career as an actor. The former France international is set to take to the stage in a tour of the French production L’Intrus (The Intruder).

Leboeuf plays Luc Gerbier, a career villain who shoots a policeman during a bungled bank raid and ends up taking a suicidal novelist hostage while on the run.

The 41-year-old has become involved in film and TV production since retiring in 2001. The route from French Premier League player to actor is becoming a well worn one.

    Frank needs to really think twice about an acting career. I saw him in a movie with Harvey Keitel and let’s just say Harvey’s shoulders were sore from carrying the movie.
