The A-League Men players with the best social media accounts

-

With many matches postponed due to COVID, we’ve had to rely on the social media accounts of A-League Men players to give us our football fix.

During a time of unprecedented change and uncertainty, most of us have been stuck in endless isolation with nothing but the company of our phones.

So here are the top four Instagram accounts to follow if you want an A-League Men fix:

4. Adrian Mariappa (@mapps_6)

Mariappa provides his 21,000 followers with plenty of content on Instagram. From podcast links to family photos, the Bulls defender posts it all.

Like any other playerm, he actively promotes his club and highlights, but what sets him apart are his training videos that show drive and passion, which can be difficult to do online.

3. Tomer Hemed (@tomerhemed)

Family man and Wanderers forward, Tomer Hemed showcases both aspects in his Instagram account.

Connecting with his Israeli followers, Hemed often posts videos whilst speaking in the native language or has them subtitled.

More than any other footballer, Hemed’s profile is heavily oriented around his wife and daughters, including cooking challenges and other trendy videos.

2. Adam Le Fondre (@a1fle9)

Sydney striker Adam Le Fondre’s Instagram exhibits not only his professional footballing career but his other hobbies too.

His 24,500 followers view a curation of golfing pictures, gaming content and of course, his family.

“A picture is worth a thousand words” and in Le Fondre’s case, his pictures speak volumes to who he is in everyday life.

  1. Daniel Sturridge (@danielstirridge)

At number one with a hefty following of 3.5 million, you just know there must be some form of captivating entertainment.

Sturridge has a pretty active presence on the content sharing app, keeping himself relevant.

His profile consists of an array of photographs both on and off the pitch, giving you the perfect balance.

If this football thing doesn’t work out, a career in the music industry as singer/songwriter may take off with Sturridge posting some creative videos after being forced into hotel quarantine last month.
