Footballer donates entire contents of his luxury home to charity shop

Generous: Rosenberg

Ever wanted to live a footballer's luxury lifestyle? Well now you can have the chance, and it will cost you a mere three and a half grand.

A big-hearted soccer ace has defied the stereotype of the highly paid sports star by handing over the entire contents of his home to a charity shop.
Staff at the Sue Ryder branch in Northfield, Birmingham, are still pinching themselves after clearing West Bromwich Albion striker Markus Rosenberg’s property in Solihull.
After two years with the Baggies, the 31-year-old has been signed by his hometown club Malm√∂, in Sweden. 
The player and club parted by mutual consent. 
The haul of bespoke furniture, fittings, Albion kits, and kitchen utensils, including plates and cutlery, was so large it had to be split up between Sue Ryder branches in Sheldon, Kings Heath and Harborne.
The donation will make thousands for the charity, which provides care for people with chronic and terminal illnesses.
Tracey Evans, stock generator for Sue Ryder’s local shops, was delighted. 'I wasn’t a West Brom fan before, but I am now,' she said.
