How Premier League Players Flaunt Wealth Is Absolutely Sickening

Sport stars are entitled to earn a decent living, but the way that some of the top Premier League stars are splashing their cash is absolutely sickening.

A good example is Steven Gerrard.

The Liverpool captain is having a gymnasium added on to his home at a cost of $700,000. The gym will feature changing rooms, plunge pool, shower rooms, kitchenette, treatment area and games area, which will be linked to the Gerrard’s existing pool at his $4 million mansion.

The gym is worth more than some of the houses in the neighborhood, but the whole thing seems incredibly excessive to me. First of all, who needs a mansion that big (see above picture)? And doesn’t Liverpool have the facilities he needs such as treatment tables, etc?

The whole thing is sickening to me as is this article about how most Manchester United players arrived at training this summer sporting new and incredibly expensive cars. It just drives a bigger gap between the working class fan who is struggling to survive from paycheck to paycheck and the football player who has so much money he doesn’t know what to spend it on. It’s not just Man United and Liverpool. If you’ve watched Sky Sports News, you’ve probably seen video of football stars driving to or from their training camp driving cars and flaunting their wealth.

Maybe it’s time to support non-league football like this one?
