Chelsea still driving Copenhagen’s Gronkjaer foward

FC COPENHAGEN winger Jesper Gronkjaer is returning to Chelsea in the second leg of the two sides’ Champion League clash this week – and there’s no denying he’s gone a long way thanks to the Blues.
Most footballers are known to flash their cash and an expensive car is normally top of the shopping list when signing a big money deal in a new country – Jermaine Pennant even forgot he owned a Porsche in Spain when he moved to Stoke this season.
But it’s gone down in Chelsea folklore that the Danish midfielder, who scored the goal that qualified Chelsea for the Champions League back in 2003, still owns the humble Vauxhall Astra he was given as a runabout after signing from Ajax in 2000.
Normally these temporary vehicles are returned after the players pick up a flash motor – but Gronkjaer drove the Vauxhall vehicle for four years until he moved on to Birmingham City, and is rumoured to have never handed back the keys.
