Stars head off on holiday on private jets before returning for crucial European fixtures

With the football season coming to an end, top-flight stars are jetting off around the world to recharge their batteries ahead of their crucial European fixtures.  

The break provides footballers with the opportunity to relax ahead of what could be another exhausting campaign as the Champions League and Europa League return in August.

Manchester United star Nemanja Matic is among those going away for a few days after an epic conclusion to the Premier League on Sunday.  

The 31-year-old took to Instagram to share a snap of himself, his wife and his daughter on board a private jet as they head to a secret destination for a family holiday.

The midfielder enjoyed a successful end to this year’s Premier League campaign as United beat Leicester 2-0 at the King Power Stadium to qualify for the Champions League next season.

Matic’s holiday will, however, be short and sweet with United returning to Europa League action on August 5, after the tournament was put on hold on March 12 due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Benjamin Mendy and Riyad Mahrez are among those heading out of the country to put their feet up after a long season. 

The Manchester City duo posted a photo of themselves on a private jet with a platter full of grapes, cheese and carrot sticks as they jetted off to ‘relax’ after finishing the league behind champions Liverpool.

Much like Matic; Mendy and Mahrez will be forced to cut their holiday short as they prepare for Champions League action on August 7.

Mahrez will be looking to continue his fine form on the European stage, after scoring 11 goals and registering nine assists in the Premier League this season. 

John Terry – who’s time is not limited by European fixtures – is jetting off to Portugal for some well-deserved rest after helping Aston Villa avoid relegation. 

The Midlands club’s 1-1 draw away at West Ham, coupled with Watford’s defeat away at Arsenal, meant Dean Smith’s side finished outside the bottom three and were not relegated to the second tier. 

Smith’s side were promoted to the Premier League last summer after beating Frank Lampard’s Derby County in the Championship play-off final and have since clawed their way to safety.
