Frugal Spending

“Secret Santa” systems are usually reserved for drab offices full of mutual loathing, but two years ago Jose Mourinho also “raised morale” at Chelsea with a secret present draw. This year, the highly paid stars at Manchester Utd will refrain from grotesque spending gestures, parting with just £5 for Christmas gifts:

“Alex didn’t want the lads openly flaunting their wealth this Christmas, with most families struggling.”

So spending as little as a fiver will go down well. A few players already have their thinking caps on about what might be appropriate and raise a giggle.”

If the players are struggling for worthless rubbish to give each other gift ideas, they should visit this site – there’s a “strip tease pen” for C-Ron, something called a “Moody Face” for Berbatov and a charming Hello Kitty letter set, with which Carlos Tevez could write to the many beautiful women he is [allegedly] having affairs with.
