retired footballer can't pay speeding car ticket spain

Though it sounds like absolute bollocks to us, the retired footballer’s lawyer is arguing Mikey can’t pay his recent speeding ticket because he (paraphrasing here) has no income and just finished his football career.

“Just because he is a famous footballer doesn’t mean he has any money coming in,” said Ballack’s attorney in defense of his apparent inability to pay a fine of £8,000.

Newsflash: irrefutable evidence suggests that it takes only takes a footballer one thing to capture a woman’s attention and that is money. So while Mr Ballack’s excuse is inexplicably pitiful, we can only wish him the best of luck the next time he goes on the pull.

Because inevitably he’ll try, and will deffo fail miserably.
