The ex-Manchester City champion Nigel de Jong flaunts his brand new showroom of cars on social media. He is still playing football actively and joined Al Ahli this summer post spending only 6 months with Galatasaray, the Turkish Super Lig side. The star is definitely all set for this new life post-football. The Netherlands international became a part of Al Ahli this year in July post being with the German side Mainz 05 in the 2nd half of the last term. The footballer made 11 appearances for the side of Bundesliga in every competition. However, there were no goals produced by this strong midfielder. He was also a part of a team of Holland which achieved the bronze medal at FIFA World Cup 2014 edition in Brazil.
De Jong’s mother always said that football was a part of his life but he needs to form himself much beyond that. That’s when de Jong thought he should do something significant for himself. In addition to being a great football player, he also had a dream to own a company. So without delay, he made the right decision to use his funds and the expertise to make it happen.
Dealing with cars was something that ran in his family as de Jong’s grandfather was the CEO of Ford in Holland and the footballer saw him closely how he formed himself as a great businessman. He was highly inspired by his grandfather and today he owns a showroom of this own.
