Former Newcastle United striker invited to become a porn star

Former Newcastle United striker Faustino Asprilla has been invited to sign a deal of an unusual nature for a former footballer.

You know the usual route for footballers after they retire, get into coaching, punditry, spending their time on the golf course - well Faustino Asprilla could be bored of that.

The former Colombian international, now 43, was linked with a return to Newcastle earlier this year for a role with the academy, but may now go a different route.

He has been offered what you could term an 'indecent proposal'.

Argentine newspaper La Nacion report that Asprilla has been offered around £23,000 for a week of shooting a porn film.

Director Andrea Garcia told the paper: "We are convinced that the lifestyle he leads and controversial media he causes is vital for us to make a proposal."

Whether the former Newcastle and Parma striker accepts remains to be seen, but we bet he has had worse offers.

FoxSports Brasil claim Asprilla even posed naked for a photoshoot back in 2007 three years after retiring, so perhaps he will go for it after all.
