Irony Alert – Premier League player wins the lottery

Posted by - January 15, 2013 - Oddballs

Well isn’t that just the way to rub it in the faces of fans?

It seems slightly odd that an individual paid a great deal of money for playing football would even bother playing the National Lottery, but the Daily Star reports that a Premier League player won a six-figure sum on the lottery before Christmas.

Whilst the player has chosen to take the non-publicity route, the paper believes that the player is a household name and won £125,942 after sharing the jackpot with nine other people by getting five balls and the bonus balls.

Would slightly dilute the enjoyment of the prize when you can earn that amount in three weeks?!
