Ball players and their and their toys…
There is no accounting for taste when it comes to soccer players and ‘pimping’ out their automobiles
Premier League footballers are known for their bizarre fashion choices – but nothing provokes a player into making an outrageous style decision like the purchase of a new car.
Sometimes, simply buying a top-of-the-line new vehicle can cause a few problems, just ask Steven Fletcher. But in many cases, a footballer feels simply spending a big bundle of cash is not enough. For some players, there is a need to go one step further.
First on this list let’s take a look at the ride of AC Milan and Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari:
Ridiculous, right? The frightening thing is that the former Portsmouth man’s latest “car” wouldn’t look out of place in most Premier League car parks. Just check out some of these beauties from over the years.
Actually, perhaps “beauties” is the wrong word…

Depending on who you support, you probably think El Hadji Diouf is either a massively entertaining rogue, or a mindless imbecile.
His gold Cadillac Escalade may provoke a similarly polarised set of opinions.
Someone should really explain the concept of camouflage to Balotelli – it’s meant to make you LESS noticeable, Mario.

And finally (for now), … em …Portsmouth players
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.
Who says Premier League players earn too much money?
