  • Dan Burn's choice of car has amused many fans with the defender opting to move around in a small car
  • Burn is the tallest player in the Premier League and one would assume he would use a spacious car
  • Chelsea's N'Golo Kante has also in the past elicited debate with his Mini-Cooper

Professional footballers are always under the sharp eye of the public on how they lead their personal lives. From the partners they are dating, to their favourite past times, everything famous footballers touch is always news.

The type of cars they always drive also often attracts interest. N'Golo's Kante's love for his Mini Cooper has been a hot topic despite the millions he is raking in at Chelsea. And now, Newcastle United defender Dan Burn has joined Kante in having 'questionable' cars.

Picture Dan Burn. The tall defender is one of the important pieces of Eddie Howe's charge of the Premier League title this season. Burn is 6 foot 7 inches tall according to the Sun and is always a nuisance during set pieces, whether he is attacking or defending them.

For such a tall player, you would imagine that he would fancy a bigger car to accommodate his long legs. However, a picture recently showed Burn signing autographs from his car, wait for it, one of England's smallest cars - Smart ForTwo.

Will Ronaldo join Newcastle?

Sports Brief had earlier reported that Newcastle manager Eddie Howe has spoken up for the first time, on the alleged clause that might enable Cristiano Ronaldo to join the club on loan.

Ronaldo, now an Al-Nassr player, was officially unveiled by the club on Tuesday, January 3 in a grand ceremony in front of tens of thousands of fans.

While the 37-year-old is now likely to end his career in the Middle East, Spanish outlet Marca came out with interesting reports suggesting Ronaldo could return to the Premier League.
