Ex-Everton and Real Madrid (remember that??!!!) midfielder Thomas Gravesen might look like a pokemon you rescue from an abandoned quarry, but by god he is good at life.
The Danish international retired at the age of 32 and was lambasted by the press for 'throwing his career away' and basically being a mess seeing as he was going out with a porn star at the time.
