Detailed Answer:
Thanks for reverting back with your clarifications

1.As no examination /investigations has been done I will sincerely recommend for an Orthopedic surgeon Consultation for baseline investigations with associated symptoms and to rule out any other causes of neck pain [although sitting in front of PC and bad sleep posture are precipitating factors, right now]
2.Playing football requires active use of neck muscles, so can be an aggravating factor.
3.Avoid: peas, split red gram (arhar), brown chick peas (chana), split green gram (moong),cauliflower, lady’s finger, bitter gourd, dates, jamun, betel nut, day time sleeping, bad posture, excessive upward looking, night time waking, excess physical exertion, fasting, excess walking.
Take: old brown rice, horse gram, black gram, garlic, pomegranate, mango, brinjal, lemon, almond, black grapes, butter, ghee, oil, tamarind, meat soup, dry heat, swimming.
4.General Instructions:
.Sleep on firm mattress.
.Stop using pillow, never sleep on your stomach, choose a side sleeping postur,seek help of physiotherapist
.Neck Exercises after consulting with Doctor.
.Full range of flexion, extension, side flexion, and curcumduction.
.Forceful movements in all directions against resistance provided by fisted hands.
