3) Sanchis Bar Marisquería

Not every Madrid player becomes a coach after hanging up his cleats. Manolo Sanchis, who played as a sweeper and appeared in more than 700 official games from 1983 to 2001, took over his father’s bar. His father also was a Real Madrid player. A must-see for true Real Madrid fans.
