Watch out Cheltenham Festival, the football invasion is here

To celebrate the world renowned Cheltenham Festival that is taking place this week, we thought it would be apt to take a look at the cross-overs that occur between the worlds of football and horse racing.

Football and horse racing go hand-in-hand. Footballers have always loved to have a flutter at the races and with the increased amount of money in football these days, more and more players and managers are buying shares in horses.

So here’s a look at those people in the world of football that will be keeping a close eye on what is going on at Cheltenham this week and if they haven’t got a horse running, you can be sure that they’ll be having a bet instead!
