In keeping with the precepts of professional football, one constant future is a 15-week break, granted to all the players to rest, unwind and recuperate, after a hectic nine-months of competition.
Like with these elite class of professional footballers in other clans, Nigerian players have also had such high profile holiday, during which they relax with friends, family, and charitable organizations.
Super Eagles winger, Moses Simon is one of them, and www.ckdmedia.ng will in this piece reflect on the vacation, he and his immediate family, had in Italy, at a resort in the Sardinia Island.
Previously, we relayed to you how Super Eagles duo Kenneth Omeruo and Wilfred Ndidi were sighted in the Seychelles, having their vacation last week.
But Moses Simon took his wife and kids to an Island in Sardinia, Italy, to cool-off after a hectic season with Nantes, in the French Ligue 1.
According to the Super Eagles winger, it has become a ritual for him and the benefits are huge.
"I think this is what I do yearly, after the season. I and now with my family chooses a location, where we can relax, have some recreation and fun, knowing well enough that the family is a cardinal reason, why I work so hard", he said.
According to him, playing professional football in one of the top-five leagues in the world can be quite demanding, in the sense that it requires training morning and evening before each game. Hence, his decision to make out time to catch fun, from outside the pitches and stadiums with his family, while staying in touch with the environment.
"Most importantly, well planned vacations helps a lot in the bonding of families, friends and other groups. But for me, I'm happy to have a closely knitted family, but it can always be better", he added .
With players already returning to their clubs for pre-season, the player who helped FC Nantes escape relegation on the final day in Ligue 1 said, he is now open to new offers, and his representatives are right on it, so should any deal be struck for him to move-on, his fans, friends and perhaps the world would be duly informed.
Sardinia is a large Italian island in Mediterranean Sea, spanning nearly 2,000km of coastline, sandy beaches and a mountainous interior crossed with hiking trails.
