Former West Brom player donates all contents of his house to charity!

West Brom

Markus Rosenberg left West Bromwich Albion by mutual consent last month, and has left with a wonderful parting gesture.

The Swedish striker didn't exactly set the world alight at The Hawthorns after arriving in 2012 as one of Steve Clarke's first signings. The 31-year-old striker didn't score a single goal in his 33 appearances for The Baggies and since being released has returned to his homeland and joined Malmo.

Moving from country to country can often be a hassle for players, having to move all their belongings. However what Markus Rosenberg has done should be admired. Instead of bringing everything with him to Sweden, he has donated the entire contents of his house to a local charity shop in Birmingham. He donated so much, that the contents had to be distributed between three different Sue Ryder charity shops.

Despite not having the best of times on the pitch, Rosenberg clearly enjoyed his time in the area, and has taken the opportunity to give something back after what he called great support from the West Brom fans. He tweeted his thanks to the club and the supporters shortly after he departed.

All that was left in the house after the donations were a few beds, and it took six hours to move all the contents to the shops. The donation will raise thousands of pounds for Sue Ryder charities who help and care for people with life-changing illnesses. It is a wonderful gesture by Rosenberg and fans can now get their hands on West Brom memorabilia including his match worn shirts.

Other items donated included a sofa, garden table and six chairs, mirrors, saucepans, cutlery, an Xbox and many more things.

Rosenberg's time at The Hawthorns will now certainly be remembered for all the right reasons.
