Ex-Manchester United and England ace Ben Foster revealed Mykonos is the place to go if you are an autograph hunter as it is “heaving with footballers”.
With the Premier League campaign all wrapped up, many players have already jetted out for their post-season holidays for a well earned break. Manchester City’s £100m man Jack Grealish has already been spotted in Ibiza, while his team mate Phil Foden was pictured with Chelsea ace Mason Mount were spotted in Monaco.
However, Foster stated Mykonos is the best hunting ground for those gregariously committed autograph hunters determined to get as many signatures as possible. And the former Watford ace even went as far to state the exact prime time to find these players on the Greek island.
“Mykonos for sure,” Foster said to the Fozcast. “Mykonos, it is the new big one.
“A lot of people also go to Portugal to be fair, a lot go and get a villa and get somewhere along the golf courses. Mykonos is huge for it though, it is heaving with footballers.
“If you are an autograph hunter, just go to Mykonos at about 8:30pm on any night and just stand in the middle.”

Considering the fact Foster has been competing at the top level for the best part of 20 years, he is a veteran when it comes to the perils of holidaying as a Premier League footballer. And the departing Hornet also stated he has gone to significant lengths to avoid footballers and autograph hunters when he has been in Mykonos with team mates or his family.
“How easy is it to spot a footballer while on holiday, thought?” Foster added. “We went to Mykonos a couple of years ago and you know there’s just hundreds of footballers there.
“You’re walking down these lovely painted cobble streets and all I am doing is looking over the top of everybody because I am tall, and I am thinking ‘oh god he’s a footballer, kids we’re going this way’. And I am dragging them down dodgy alleys just to divert around them.”
