Do we have a rival for McAteer's legendary faux pas? Jason was once, allegedly asked, if he like his pizza cut into 4 or 8 slices and replied "4, becasue I'd never eat 8". This is almost as daft, though also shows the excesses of a mediocre footballers lifestyle.
Real Zaragoza had to get in touch with former player Jermaine Pennant to tell the Stoke winger he had left a Porsche abandoned at Zaragoza train station for five months, according to a report in Marca.http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/19012011/58/premier-league-stoke-star-forgot-owned-porsche.html
The Spanish paper claims that when Pennant was contacted by Zaragoza about the car, he admitted he did not remember anything about it.
Zaragoza were then forced to open the car and were surprised to find that the keys were on the seat. The car in question had a customised licence plate with the number 'P33NNT" on it. Pennant is a big fan of cars and has a sportscar collection. The former Arsenal and Liverpool star signed for Zaragoza on a free transfer in the summer of 2009 but he struggled to make an impact with the Liga side. During his spell in Spain he infuriated coach José Aurelio Gay after turning up late for training three times in the space of two weeks. Last August he signed for Stoke City on a four-month loan deal which was then made permanent in December. Pennant was once deemed one of the hottest prospects in the game, and played 24 times for the England U21s, but the 28-year-old has never won a full England cap.
