Man City midfielder sells his Audi online

Manchester City midfielder Stephen Ireland has put the Audi R8 which became the bane of his life up for sale through Auto Trader’s website. As reported on OTP, the Irish star came under-fire from City and Manchester United fans alike after buying the £100,000 in a Raspberry Ripple colour scheme (that’s red and white to us mere mortals).

Having forked out an extra £25,000 to get the 2008 car resprayed blue, Ireland has now put it up for sale for £69,950. And he might be considering a career as a motor trader by the sounds of the advert, which claims that the vehicle is an “Ex Premiership Footballers Car”.

The shock retirement revelation is rivalled only by the shocking grammar. Click here to buy the car… yeah, right.
