The biggest European football carnival has begun a few days ago on the French land and football fanatics are kicked into a frenzy with this once in four years treat. Top 24 European nations are battling their guts out to be crowned as the ultimate champions of Europe. The event is flooded with football superstars or we should say ROCKSTARS, and the fans are eagerly waiting to watch them dribble, tackle and shoot on the lush green french fields.
The life of football superstars is often very glittering, flashy, eventful, and adventurous owing to the colossal wealth they accumulate from this super popular sport. This wealth is often displayed through their expensive lifestyle and the pricey possessions which they don’t fail to show off more often than never. Gigantic castle like homes, haute couture, lavish holidays, VVIP parties, expensive cars...the list is endless. You name it and they have it. Among all the above mentioned, owning premium cars is so common as if it is a mandate for a popular football player.
From the most expensive ones to the fastest ones. They have all kind of machines in their parking space and from best of the makers. Wheels from Porsche, Bentley, Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Ferrari etc. are proudly owned by these 90-yard superheroes. It’s very obvious that their car collection is graced with multiple brands but interestingly our football studs have special love for the German automobile manufacturer. Yes! We are talking about "Audi" which seems to be a favourite player among our European soccer stars.
