Unlikely footballer reading
Real Madrid footballers don’t have a reputation as great thinkers (just ask Monica Mint). But Esteban Granero is attempting to turn that around.
Spanish TV cameras spotting him reading Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five on the Real Madrid team-bus. The midfielder was enjoying getting stuck into the anti-war sci-fi novel nearly as much as Cristiano Ronaldo was enjoying getting stuck into his sandwich.
This is nearly, but not quite, as shocking as the time we caught Jermaine Pennant reading the Bourne Deception.
