The legendary actor died this Saturday at the age of 90 but before he established himself as a movie star, he was an amateur player who seduced the Reds.

The world lamented this Saturday the death of an actor who was an icon of his time: Sean Connery. At 90 years old, the Scotsman who marked a generation as James Bond in seven films in the Agent 007 saga, died after being “sick for a while,” according to his son Jason Connery, also an actor and film director.

With his departure also leaves a piece of history of the film industry and not only for his leading roles in the films in which he enjoyed “license to kill”, but also for his work in Indiana Jones or Los Untocables, for which he won an Oscar for best supporting actor.

However, before dedicating himself to acting, Connery had shown good conditions for his other passion: football. The Scotsman was a player of the Bonnyringg Rose Athletic from his country, who gave him a meaningful message on his social networks.

“A rainbow appears over New Dundas Park following the sad announcement of what was probably our most famous footballer and one of the most iconic Scotsmen of all time. We would like to offer our condolences to his family. RIP Sean.”

Apparently Connery wasn’t bad at all with the ball on his feet. He moved as a right wing and was even offered a test in East Fife, which today plays in the second category of Scotland.

And not only that: at 23 he was playing a game and in the stands he was Matt Busby, legendary Manchester United manager who marveled at Connery’s talent. She tempted him with a contract of 25 euros a week and Sean had to choose between acting or football. Well, the story is known …

I really wanted to accept because I loved football. But I realized that a first-rate footballer could be on the hill at 30 years old, and I was already 23. I decided to become an actor and it turned out to be one of my smartest moves, “he confessed later.

The same thing was given a treat: in 2005 he entered the Camp Nou, the home of Lionel Messi’s Barcelona, ​​to share some time on the pitch with Ronaldinho in a meeting for peace between Israel and Palestine.
