Football Stars and Weird CarsBack

Euro 2016 is swiftly approaching, and as England build up to Europe’s biggest football tournament, Trusted Dealers takes a look at some of the football stars and their weird cars.

Footballers may get paid high amounts of money, but that doesn’t stop them from having poor taste as some of the picks below will reveal. Take a look at some of the strangest cars ever bought by past and current footballers.
GoldPlated

Pierre EmerickAubameyang: Striker for Borussia Dortmund

Pierre recently treated himself to an Audi R8 – a fabulous choice until he decided that he wanted it to be gold foiled! According to German publication Bild, it has set him back around £150,000.

Sulley Muntari: Central Midfielder for Ittihad FC

Sulley Muntari bought a brand new Mercedes Brabus G63 AMG 6×6 SUV, priced at $900,000. Why go for a 4 wheeler when you can have a 10 wheeler? We expect its pretty hard to drive around, and even worse to park!

Steven Ireland: Attacking Midfielder for Stoke CityStevenIreland

We are pretty certain that Ireland will probably not want to be reminded of his pink Range Rover that he drove whilst at Manchester City more than a decade ago. Whilst we love the Range Rover, we’re really not sure the pink detail was entirely necessary…

El Hadji Diouf: Retired Wing/Forward last played for Sabah

Another footballer opting for a gold plated Cadillac was El Hadji Diouf, we’re not quite sure what he was thinking at the time, but it’s certainly a head turner! But this isn’t the only garish car in Diouf’s garage – he also owns a £420,000 chrome Mercedes-Benz SLR McClaren and a Cadillac Escalade – a car also previously owned by David Beckham.

BeckhamJeepDavid Beckham: Retired Striker last played for LA Galaxy

While we’re on the subject, it’s worth taking a look at one of the weirdest cars ever owned by David Beckham. He drove this giant off road Jeep Wrangler in 2008 and was pictured many times taking it on the school run – an indication that discretion was not top of his priorities when he lived in LA.

Mario Balotelli: Striker for A.C. Milan

Another world class footballer whose choice of car was hard to miss was Mario Balotello and his beloved Camouflaged Bentley, valued at $200,000! He purchased the car while playing for Manchester City – why? Well, that’s anyone’s guess.

William Gallas: Retired Defender last played for Perth GloryGallas

The vanity of some footballers has been known to be quite extreme, but William Gallas took it to another level when he chose to drive a Chrome Mercedes McClaren. Former player for Arsenal and Chelsea, his silver Mercedes looked like one large mirror!
