#FOPicks: Top 10 MSL footballers to follow on social media

We see our favourite football players on the pitch, and we know exactly who they are as a player and what they can pull off. But what are they like behind the scenes? What do they do once they get home? Are they normally quiet, prefer cooling off at home, or perhaps they like jetting off to their favourite holiday spots?

Here are some MSL footballers who active on social media and constantly give us a glimpse of what a Malaysian footballer’s life is like:
