The perks of professional football are never-ending.

While the Bafana Bafana and club teammates prepare to carry national hopes, the players left on the fringes have enjoyed the best the South African summer has to offer.

Since the turn of the year, social media has been flooded with envy-inducing shots of beach escapes, family bonding, and endless relaxation.

These players would have been working hard to impress Hugo Broos in November and December but were left out of the Belgian's 23 to jet off to AFCON 2023.

Joint DStv Premiership top goal-scorer, as per TransferMarkt, Bradley Grobler posted a video of his fishing trip, which included proof of his ability to bag fish the way he bags goals.

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, Yusuf Maart hails from Cape Town and returned home to breathe the fresh ocean air.

He has improved dramatically under Cavin Johnson, even picking up the armband in the absence of the established leadership.

Holidays are for family and SuperSport United midfielder, Grant Margeman took his son, Leo to the beach for his sixth birthday.

Margeman's hard work off the ball has been indicative of Gavin Hunt's squad in the DStv Premiership, and the midfielder may feel hard done by not to have at least made Hugo Bross's reserve list, having helped make United a top team.

Like all the City players, the beach surrounds their working environment. Joint DStv Premiership top scorer, Khanyisa Mayo looked set for Abidjan but got an acceptable consolation prize.

He spent part of the festive holidays lounging in the waves but also helped out at City's junior holiday camp.

The Portugal and Al-Nassr superstar has returned to Madiera with his significant other, Georgina Rodriguez.

Fans gathered at the airport, hoping to catch a glimpse of the star, but he managed to leave without detection.
