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.
