FOOTBALLERS love nothing more than splashing their money… and more often that not it's on something tasteless, tacky and garishly coloured.
Decorating their homes brings out the worst in them.
From Ryan Giggs with his Prince-inspired purple £3.5million five-bed mansion that he put up for sale to Andy Carroll's pink palace, there's no limit to tasteless decor.
From pink bedrooms to underground swimming pools and built-in nightclubs, these Premier League stars have it all under their roof.
Andy Carroll had a built-in hair salon for his flowing locks, while Phil Bardsley had the floor replaced with glass to see the level below.
Be warned – there's a lot of velvet ahead…
Our first stop has to be Essex – where else? – for the Newcastle star's former home, which was Rightmove's most viewed property in 2019.
Carroll and his former Towie missus Billie Mucklow seem to love the colour pink – it's everywhere – as is the standard crushed velvet carpet throughout.
You shouldn't be surprised that the man who once boasted a Range Rover with a full pink interior and alloys would be on this list.
The £3.95m Cheshire mansion had a mini astro turf pitch and £100,000 fish tank.
Anyone who has seen an episode of the Real Housewives of Cheshire will know that Tanya Bardsley likes the finer things in life.
In their former Wilmslow mansion, that included an indoor hot tub and huge personal dressing room.
Another member of The Real Housewives of Cheshire set, Dawn Ward is also a property developer.
Apparently the couple had been struggling to sell Warford Hall in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, for five years before finally getting rid of it – we can't think why.
Samir Nasri eventually sold this sprawling mansion for £5.75m in March 2017.
The eight-bedroom Alderley Edge estate – which boasts an indoor nightclub, huge wine cellar and steam room – sat on 32 acres and was described as 'unashamedly opulent' on the listing.
The Wales boss – who is currently on leave – took us by surprise with his purple-themed pad, which was put up for sale for £3.5m.
As well as the Prince-inspired dining room and cinema, Giggsy's former gaff had five bedrooms, a cinema and an indoor pool, and was located down a private road.
It eventually sold when the Manchester United slashed £500,000 off the asking price.
