    David Villa lives his last days as a soccer player in the Japanese city of Kobe. "The Kid" leaves behind a career full of success and hard work that he shares with his entire family. On those emotion-packed days, there is no lack of laughter nor tears. Between picking up his three children from school and recovering from his last injury, they make time to visit a typical Japanese temple.

    Xavi Hernández coaches Al Sadd SC in the city of Doha. These are turbulent days for him and his family, since he has just turned down the offer from F.C. Barcelona to coach the Catalan team. Xavi and his wife, Nuria, show what their everyday life is like and why they are reluctant to move away from this city built on the desert.

    Javi Martínez has been living in the German city of Munich for eight years. This midfielder for whom Bayern paid 40 million euros to Athletic Bilbao feels like just another German citizen. Now, in a typical Bavarian restaurant, he plays host to the French world champion Lucas Hernández and to the player on loan from Real Madrid, Álvaro Odriozola.

    Juan Mata signed for Manchester United six years ago. Living in the United Kingdom is a privilege for him because "it opens your mind to other cultures." His friends are very important to him, they help him to not feel like he is living in a bubble. Eduardo Rifaterra, a Valencian player, helps him make sure that fame does not pull him away from reality, something that always worried him.
