Dude, he went out for a jog. That 10k run was about 6:30 mile pace. Even if that was a race, it would prove people right who say that soccer players can run way better than the average person off of just soccer training.
I do not think that it is a very good result for an athlete who is paid several thousand dollars each week to do a sport which is basically running around a grass field for 90 minutes. I would be expecting to see something like at least 31 mins for a 10k for a full-time professional athlete in an endurance sport. As a comparison, top professional triathletes these days get paid far less money and they can run around 28 mins for 10k and their sport is only 1/3 running.
Well they don't run for 90 min...they might sprint 10-20 yards then walk around for a good while.
