While we hear that professional footballers earn an obscene amount of money, the sad truth is that this is extremely lopsided. While Premier league earn hundreds of pounds on a weekly basis, there are many footballers who have to struggle on a day to day basis so as to allow themselves a chance to earn a living out of football.
CK Vineet, a winger plays for the Indian national team and for Bengaluru FC, is the middle of his off season. While all his teammates are recuperating themselves for a grueling season ahead, he is seen helping his father in faring activities.

This is what Vineeth himself had to say,
“As a son, it’s my duty to help out my dad. Whenever I get the time to come home, I try and help him on the paddy field. Everyone in the family puts in the work needed,” Vineeth was quoted as telling the All India Football Federation (AIFF) website.
“So with the hectic season having just ended, I felt best to go back to my roots and indulge in farming. It has always been a unique experience. Unwinding couldn’t have better,” added the Bengaluru FC player.
“The field is right in front of our home. My dad retired four years ago. Previously, he used to work on the field only during his free time but now he is into farming on a more regular basis,” he said.
