FOOTBALLERS are enjoying some ‘relative anonymity’ by holidaying in $10,000-a-night luxury US mansions.
The mansions include everything someone could hope for, from private jets to supercars.
Stars, including Real Madrid stars Karim Benzema, 35, and Mariano Díaz, 29, have recently jetted over to LA to enjoy a luxury holiday in relative anonymity.
The French striker spent two weeks with his family in the Hollywood Hills and took in everything it has to offer.
Mokhtar Jabli’s firm, The Nightfall Group, supplied the property, and he revealed that more and more big-name footballers are holidaying in America.
The 30-year-old entrepreneur said: “We do everything for them from their flights, luggage, and transfers to luxury accommodations.
“Then when they get here, they get supercars, private jets, concierge, nannies, and private chefs – you name it.
“All our locations are super private, and many have security so they can relax safe in the knowledge they are secure.
“I think this – and the fact that soccer isn’t as big in the US as it is in much of the rest of the world – is a big attraction.
“Benzema can walk down the street in LA with his family without getting stopped. The same won’t be true in Spain or Italy.
“The big-name footballers get hassled everywhere they go, and I think they like being just a face in the crowd.
“We’ve also got great weather, food, and everything you could want on your doorstep. But I definitely believe that anonymity is a big pull.”
He revealed other stars, including recently retired former PSG player Blaise Matuidi, have enjoyed trips, as well as numerous others that he is not allowed to name.
The footballers pay an average of $10,000 (£8,246) a night for the luxury service – which caters for their every “want and need”, he explained.
Jabli’s current lifestyle is a far cry from his humble beginning in Morocco and then France.
He always wanted to move to America, and after finishing a master’s degree in Paris in 2016, he moved straight to California.
But he struggled to make ends meet and, while working on an internship at a financial firm, began renting out his room on Airbnb to survive.
For a while, he slept on the sofa before he opted to live in his car so he could rent out the whole apartment for $5,000 a month.
Mr Jabil endured this for a month before he built up enough savings to rent two places.
Seeing what was possible convinced him to pursue a career in real estate rental, and he has since turned The Nightfall Group into a multi-million dollar business.
