Aww! Martins Turns Jerseys From Ex-clubs To Dining Room Furniture
People say footballers don’t care about the clubs they play for; that a little stint here and there means nothing to some of these mercenaries.
Well, not for the renowned house-proud player Obafemi Martins. And the former Newcastle striker is someone who should know his way around a fair few training grounds by now.
For the 28-year-old has had eight clubs since leaving his native Nigeria for pastures new: Reggiana, Inter Milan, Newcastle, Wolfsburg, Rubin Kazan, Birmingham, Levante and now American MLS outfit Seattle Sounders.
What has Martins done to commemorate his colourful career? Well, he has chosen to use shirts from his old clubs – and his country – to upholster his golden dining room chairs.
As the picture shows, Martins is proudly showing off his kit to any visitors to his household – what a novel idea.
