So when you get paid to work out and run around chasing a ball, then it’s only natural that you would like to use the money you make on easier transportation. Some of these might not even be that easy, but at least they’re flashy.
El Hadi Diouf – A Gold Cadillac Escalade
Not only is it an Escalade but it’s also Gold. Any rapper would be jealous, and so are we.
Sulley Muntari – A Mercedes Brabus G63 AMG 6×6
I don’t think there’s nothing that says “I’m a great driver” more than managing to parallel park this monstrosity. I mean it probably takes two parking spaces too, and I know I haven’t seen two parking spaces in a row in a long time.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – A Gold Audi R8
There might be a million Audi R8’s out there, and half of them is probably driven by footballers, but a Gold Audi R8? Priceless. Not really though, we heard it cost about £150,000.
Stephen Ireland – A Pink Range Rover Sport
OK, so maybe only the details are pink, and maybe pink is a shitty color, but still, it’s a Range Rover. Don’t approve? Well, we don’t care, and obviously neither does Mikael Silvestre, Joe Cole, Michael Essien, Salomon Kalou, John Terry, Jimmy Bullard, Danny Murphy, Steven Gerrard, Xabi Alonso, Martin Skrtel, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Darren Fletcher, Michael Owen, Joey Barton, Peter Crouch, Roman Pavlyuchenko, Giovani dos Santos, Dean Ashton, Mark Noble, Rob Green or Lee Cattermole.
Mario Balotelli – A Camouflage Bentley Continental GT
We hear he even has a camouflage Ferrari too, to match his shoes, clothes and anything he could custom make with camouflage.
William Gallas – A Chrome McLaren Mercedes SLR
It looks great and all, but imagine the insane sun reflection your would get on that hood in the middle of the day. Maybe there isn’t that much sun in France that it’s that big of a problem.
Portsmouth players – A Reliant Robin
It probably won’t be considered madly spectacular, but it’s mad enough to make the list. Back when Portsmouth were a Premier League club spending (way too much) money on big names, the player who performed worst in training was made to drive home in a beaten up, old Reliant Robin.
So what did the players do? Chucked some cash at the problem and got it pimped into this bizarre creation.
