Andrea Vasa: Home Sweet Home


Andrea Vasa may not be a name you’ve heard before – but it will be one you’ll remember. Well, for at least two minutes after reading this story, anyway. 

Andrea is a defender for Bresa, a lower-tier club in the Italian leagues.  Due to a combination of being cash-poor and abs-rich, he agreed to move into the Dirk Bikkemberg shop window in Milan, which has been styled to resemble a luxury flat. 

Vasa gets a nice car and all the free clothes he can scarper, plus of course, he gets to live in a shop window. Customers have the right to observe him in his “home” whilst browsing for fashionable clothing.

We can’t decide if this is just sad, or brilliantly sad.  But we will let you know after we’ve reported on the thread count of the bed sheets.

Of course, the obvious and valuable lesson to be learned from this urban tale of broke ass players using themselves as objects of retail pimpdom: Don’t date a lower tier player.

A question: which footballer’s living / retail space would you most like to crash?  We’re torn between being able to finally confirm what type of lip gloss, moisturizer and other necessities The Ramos packs in his man bag every morning vs being able to just see Roque Santa Cruz in his jammies.

    Wow, I wonder if he is responsible for upkeep or if they do it. Can’t be a slob if there’s shoppers keeping an eye on you.

    Hm, well if we’re referring to which ballers I’d like to be in the homes of… we’re not counting ballers I’d like to be in the bed of, right? ; ) Hm, Pepe’s (Reina) home. I feel like it’d be stylish, yet warm and inviting. Like him! :)

    Hmm. I think it would have to be Matteo Brighi right now, after hearing that he wants to start a family, and since I AM available… I'd ogle him 24/7

    The Ramos Defooooo without a doubt !

    Honestly, was that bedspread knit out of filthy goat hair? It’s horrendous.

    If I could live in a baller’s house, it would of course be Roy’s – big Irish Catholic family, lots of kids, lots of fun, lots of dogs, lots of affection, exactly how I grew up. Not that he reminds me in ANY way of my father! *shudders and shakes head vigorously*

    OOH!!! THE RAMOS FOR SURE…that is just something that would best be viewed in it's natural habitat…do you think he hangs around the house in his boxer-briefs? He does in my head….mmm…

  7. striker says:

    I’d like to crash Yoann Gourcuff’s place. I have a feeling he makes some great breakfast crepes.

  8. Sarah says:

    Hahahaha how awkward.

  9. Avenath says:

    Brilliantly sad, i’m afraid…oooh, Roque with the “just woken up” look…preferably in the buff, of course…

  10. Eva says:

    Good Jesus…I never thought I’d say this… I’d rather go home to a dude’s mama’s house than a damn shop window. The recession is really kickin some people where it hurts!
    Much love from Chicago!

  11. Raina says:

    This may seriously be the strangest thing I’ve seen in a long time.  I really thought it was a joke until I looked at all the pics.  And what’s up with his clothes in the first pic??

  12. Cheryl says:

    could we ask them to call up lampsie…????

  13. Rebecca says:

    I'd be more than happy if I got stuck there with Saint Iker… or Yoann Gourcuff. On second thought, why not both? xD

  14. Kylah (twinyk) says:

    Man, I don't think many girls will want to go home with him now, large amounts of strangers watching the two together, may not be the most comfortable of situations

  15. Baby Freya (Mrs Arbe says:

    Hahaha! Well, I guess that's his privacy out the window! Whatever he is wearing in the main pic should be burned…..its the mother of ugly clothes! And I would PAY to see RSC in his jammies!

  16. FootballerChick43 - says:

    That's… genius, really. If I got all the free clothes I could wear and a car, I would totally let people observe my day-to-day activities. Congratulations, Andrea Vasa – you've made my official watch-list.

  17. 'TorresNubianQueen' says:

    awww bless him the things ppl do baffle me sometimes and what in the world is he wearing in the first pic?? lol moment me say

  18. Genevieve Gourcuff says:

    Brilliantly sad… I’d love it if Yoann, Iker and Roque all moved in together… omg can you imagine all that hotness in the one room???? :)

  19. FirstTeamCoach says:

    Looks like the bed is on the second floor shop window LOL How long does he have to live in the fish bowl? He is classy NOT.
