Not your usual footballer’s car

WHAT cars do footballers usually drive? Bentleys, Range Rovers or Ferraris would enter most peoples’ heads. That’s probably been tarted up (or blinged up in Yoof speak) to an acquired taste. Chances are they will be featured in a tabloid newspaper that’s been in a crash.

Morten Gamst Pedersen challenges the footballer stereotype. The Blackburn Rovers veteran here is pictured with his Tiger R6 kit car.

It’s highly unlikely you’d see the Norweigan International arrive to Ewood Park or Brockhall in the Tiger. More than anything, it will be his weekend toy. With the size of his wage packet, he can afford to own a few flash cars.

Pedersen’s Tiger kit car is a world away from El-Hadji Diouf’s Cadillac Escalade. His former teammate’s motor is blinged up with a hideous gold paint job that's an epitome of poor taste.
