Premier League Footballer Sergio Aguero joins the veggie athlete club

Premier League Footballer Sergio Aguero joins the veggie athlete club

2015-05-13 
| by Editor

 

Can you believe it? Arguably the Barclays Premier League’s best footballer and current top goalscorer Sergio Aguero of Manchester City Football Club revealed that his latest vegetarian diet had helped him recover from his injuries and stay fitter and stronger as a result.

See full story in the Independent here

 

This is almost the highest profile endorsement right now of the benefits of ditching our meat, from one of the best footballers in the whole world, coming from a country whose diet is laden with meat, and in an industry with deep-rooted beliefs that meat consumption is essential in achieving optimal fitness and strength.

 

No wonder Aguero looked absolutely revitalised with clinical precision in his finishing since coming back from his injuries mid-season. With currently 25 goals in 31 league appearances, he is set to win the Golden Boot for scoring the highest number of goals in the Premier League this season. Take a bow, Sergio!

 

Despite being vastly outnumbered, there are currently some very interesting vegetarian/vegan connections in the football world, including:

 

Hopefully with striker extraordinaire Aguero leading the line for the vegetarian movement in addition to his current club Manchester City, more professional athletes will see from a health fitness perspective how amazing it can be to live without meat and hence follow suit.

 

Who knows? We might bump into Sergio one day at Vegfest!
