The 2014-15 Premier League winning captain, John Terry tops the league of the captains when it comes to spending money on his car. The Chelsea skipper’s Rolls-Royce Wraith set him back a staggering £235,000.
Based on the list compiled by VertuLeaseCars.co.uk, Wayne Rooney is second on the list in price with his £200,000 Vanquish.
In comparison, fellow UEFA Champions League qualifiers, Vincent Kompany and Mikel Arteta, captains of Manchester City and Arsenal, spent a modest £86,080 and £44,715 on their Porsche Panamera 4S and Audi Q5’s respectively.
Just like his team propped up the Premier League table this season, Joey Barton’s £21,995 Toyota Prius ranks 20th of the captains when it comes to price. The controversial midfielder is now a former-Queens Park Rangers captain following his release this week after a dismal season leading the wealthy club back down to the Championship.
Other Premier League captains who have modest cars compared to their salary are West Brom’s Darren Fletcher (Chevrolet Impala – £26,500), Everton’s Phil Jagielka (Vauxhall Ampera – £32,995) and Burnley’s Jason Shackell (Mercedes E220CDI AMG Coupé – £39,310).
It is Tottenham Hotspur captain Younès Kaboul who likes to drive the fastest, with his Porsche Cayenne Turbo S by far the quickest car on the list. In comparison, Phil Jagielka props up the cars when it comes to speed, with his Vauxhall reaching 100mph tops.
