At one point in his life, Pablo Escobar was one of the richest men on the face of the Earth during the height of his career as a drug trafficker in South America.
Escobar’s exploits have been well-documented over the years, including being made into the hit Netflix series Narcos.
Now, most people know the name Escobar because of his involvement as a drug lord, but being from South America he also had a significant love for football.
Escobar owned a football side in his native city Medellin known as Atletico Nacional, which has become one of the top sides in Colombia
Obviously Escobar had an interesting life, but when he was arrested in 1991 he actually struck a deal so that he could go to a prison built by his staff.
He hosted lavish parties, many beautiful women and, of course, football matches.
His secluded prison was known as ‘El Catedral,’ or The Cathedral in English, because of how extravagant it was.
Given Escobar’s love for football, he used his influence to invite some of the world’s biggest stars to come play the sport with him.
