Cameroonian International Alex Song has opened up on his extravagant lifestyle while playing active football.
The Former Arsenal and Barcelona man said he was overly trying to impress people that he could not even save money.
He said he wasted money on things that didn’t bring profit.
Song recounted how he had to sign a deal with a car dealer so he can also drive the car Thierry Henry was driving at the time.
“I came to training, saw Henry arrive in his car, I thought I needed the same no matter the cost because I was a footballer, went to the dealer, signed some papers and ended up with the same car as Henry. Still, I understood that my money was going to run out and I asked for a Toyota instead” he said
The 32-year-old midfielder added: “Barcelona were interested in signing me, and their sporting director spoke to me, he told me that I was not going to play much football there. I told him that I don’t care. I knew that now I was going to be a billionaire.”
