DAVID MAY won it all with Manchester United before importing wine once he had retired.
The former defender's career change shocked customers, having had a reputation for being a joker during his playing days.
May's dressing room antics even included PEEING on his own team-mates in the shower.
The 53-year-old spent nine years at Old Trafford between 1994 and 2003.
During that time, he made 118 appearances for United and won two league titles, two FA Cups and the Champions League.
However, it is his off-field antics that some fans remember May best for.

He recalled some of his pranks in an interview with FourFourTwo in 2007.
May recalled: "When I wasn’t greeting Jordi Cruyff with ‘Dos San Miguels you dago b*****d’."
"I’d urinate down team-mates’ legs in the shower, cut the laces out of Nicky Butt’s new trainers or put Deep Heat in the kitman’s shorts."
His career change after retiring in 2004 also came as a shock for some, with May going on to import wine after ending his playing career.

He continued: "After retiring in 2004, I formed a partnership to import South African wine with a friend and it’s gone well ever since.
"I was lucky to have made some money from football to invest in the business, whereas I played with lads at Blackburn and Burnley who now work in factories.
"New clients can be surprised that I’m now involved in wine, but I’ve yet to meet an irate Leeds or Liverpool fan who doesn’t want to do business.
"We’ve just launched a new range called Mayson Ridge – the ‘May’ coming from my name.
"My business partner is a South African restaurateur and he speaks Afrikaans.
"We have a Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and a Pinotage, which is a cocktail of red fruit flavours on both the nose and the palate."
Unfortunately, the venture would not last, with May revealing two years later he had "knocked it on the head because the lad I was with was a complete p****".
As well as his wine business, May has also worked as a pundit for MUTV since retiring.
His punditry work has come alongside a brief coaching career and hosting United's official club podcast.
