Jesus Navas drives the most normal car around

Are the days of footballers driving flashy motors a thing of the past?

Manchester City star Jesus Navas regularly turns up to training in a Nissan Micra, The Sun reports.

While his team-mates park their Range Rovers and Bentleys at the club’s training ground, the Spaniard makes do with his £8,000 wheels.

This comes just a few weeks after it was revealed Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen’s Mum dropped him off at Belgium training.

Unfortunately for Navas, it’s not even the best car you can get for that price, with What Car? magazine giving the nippy Nissan just a one-star review.

A source said: “Jesus has a few motors so none of the lads can get their head round why he drives that.

“It looks a bit funny parked next to all the sports cars.

“They’ve had a bit of a laugh at his expense but Jesus has taken it in good spirits.”

Footballers driving functional and humble cars? Now we’ve seen it all.
