Today, March 26, 2017 is the mother's day celebration everywhere in the world and many football stars around the world will be proud of their mothers.
It is expected that many players will give flowers, presents and cards to their mothers and other maternal figures such as grandmothers, stepmothers and mothers-in-law.
But here we take a look at some players who will never play with today's celebration considering how their mothers helped their football career.
1. Paul Pogba
Manchester United star Paul Pogba may be criticized for spending too much time practicing his dabs or getting his haircut, but his insistence on being a good son to Mrs Pogba can never be downplayed.
His mother has been a strong pillar for him and his two brothers since they chose football as their careers, and the woman is now enjoying the fruits of her labor as Pogba will do anything to make his Mum comfortable.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo
Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo is another player whose mother made him the person he is today considering how his 'drunkard' father abandoned him when he was young.
Ronaldo who is the world's best player has always being seen anywhere he goes with his mother and the woman has never left him for once.
3. Gabriel Jesus
Injured Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus will never play with his mother named Vera as the woman raised him up alone.
NAIJ.com learnt that Vera is also living with his son in England and even controls what goes on his plate because the 19-year-old Brazilian star suffers from stomach cramps which can affect his performance on the pitch if he eats the wrong grub.
