Repo Man Nightmare For West Ham United Star

That’s exactly what has happened to West Ham United striker Carlton Cole, who despite his massive salary, estimated at around £20,000 a week, has still managed to see four cars worth around £264,000 repossessed in just the last two months. (What is about West Ham players and cars?)

Cole’s £132,000 Bentley Continental GTC, the car of choice for the flash footballer, is the latest motor to be taken off his hands after he failed to keep up repayments.

This follows the repossession of his £62,000 BMX 650, a £50,000 BMW X5 and a £20,000 Mini Cooper. And all within just a couple of months.

Cole has also been in trouble over a dispute for an unpaid £800 congestion charge.

However, fear not, young Carlton, as the Sun provides you with four easy steps to avoid financial trouble, one of which is “Cut spending”.

Now who would have thought of that?
