Former Manchester United youngster Ramon Calliste is now the proud of Global Watches which is a company that rakes in around £5m a year which is an incredible one.

The Welsh footballer failed to make it to the top of his football career before he quit with stint at Manchester United where he trained with the likes of Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney and Ronaldo.

But after finding it difficult to break into Manchester United's first team, Ramon Calliste decided to move out at Old Trafford and joined Liverpool where he was the top scorer for the reserve team.

Despite his brilliant performance in the reserve team at Liverpool, Calliste was unable to enter the main team and the frustration forced him to Scunthorpe in 2006.

According to the report on UK Sun, the 35-year-old decided to go into business in 2013 and has been getting massive profit ever since then.

"When I realised football wasn't going to give me the life I desired, it was about setting up something else and moving fast.
"Once I saw it could become a viable business, I set up Global Watches in 2013 and it's become a really strong company that's now turning over millions.''
