Did you know that music wasn’t Bob Marley’s only passion? The Jamaican reggae singer and musician was also involved in association football, which we know better as soccer. In fact, soccer played an important role in his life. He played the sport whenever he could and sometimes even kicked the ball around in the recording studio. He was a huge fan of the English football organization, the Tottenham Hot spurs and the team’s midfielder, Ossie Ardiles, an Argentinian. He immersed himself in the soccer scene and hung around professional soccer players. In 1970, he hired former Jamaican footballer Allan ‘Skill’ Cole to be his tour manager.
