The heroes of the game are known to splurge lavishly on their residential quarters.
Football stars are compensated handsomely for their abilities and theatrics. Their popularity and marketability earn them huge sums of money through lucrative contracts and sponsorship arrangements.
As a result, football players spend their money on frivolities. Footballers are notorious for their extravagant spending on real estate. They are not frugal and would go all out to buy gorgeous mansions or villas to rest in luxury.
