Definitely true things you've heard about Footballers

Recommended Posts

Former Middlesbrough striker Massimo Maccarone cares more about his collection of toupees than he does his own children. Rumour has it he never wears his custom made toupees when they are delivered to him, instead he prefers to place them (gently) in his giant fish-tank and pretend they are a new breed of jellyfish.

Emile Heskey is now a mental health nurse in a retirement home. He often volunteers his time to play a game of chess with dementia patients, but plays for blood. When he wins a game he can often be seen running about the corridors and doing his iconic ‘DJ mix’ celebration, rolling back the years, and causing confusion for all concerned.

Iconic Manchester City player Danny Mills has a bald head because he likes to sniff farts whilst they're being lit, leading to his hair being burnt off. He's quite often found wandering Canal Street in Manchester offering £20 to anybody willing to light farts in his face.

As the descendant of a prominent Luddite, ex-Scotland goalkeeper Alan Rough has always been a bit of a technophobe. He still has the Nokia 5110 he was given as a gift in 1998. He rarely switches it on or tops up the credit, and he has never once played Snake. He still uses a rotary dial phone at home. Sometimes.

Although the ban wasn’t for stating an obvious truth, it was for the ‘comedy’ stuttering he did with it.

Larry Lloyd once got into a fight with Harry Secombe on a plane. The ex-Liverpool and Forest man was sat minding his own business when the presenter of TV programmes for God-botherers started acting up after half a glass of red. To this day, flight attendants on that particular route still refer to passengers' lairy behaviour as "doing a Secombe".

Paul Merson's well-documented issues with booze and coke left him genuinely believing he'd ended up in MIddlesbrough because of a tornado, a bit like Dorothy in 'The Wizard of Oz'.

Harry Maguire has a triangular shaped room with mirrored walls which he uses only to watch himself sing the Marc Almond and Gene Pitney version of somethings got a hold of my heart. He uses it before training, after training and before bed.

Mama Sakho has a purpose-built garage for his Lambo. The problem is, the ceiling is only about a foot above the roofline so he has never been able to use it.

Ex Birmingham centre back Darren Purse still carries a motorola pager around with him despite the last page he received being from his wife telling him to put the news on as 9/11 unfolded. "It's for luck, If I'm out and about I won't get hit by a plane" he proclaimed to the Dudley Express seconds before a MiG-29 missed his head by inches. "See what did I tell you, the wife's thinks I'm silly but eh... up here for thinking down there for dancing!"
