Newcastle United

Best known in the UK for his stint at Newcastle United, what Faustino Asprilla is up to now is a lot more bizarre...

Footballers are weird aren't they? Most of them have loads and loads of money and who can blame them for being a little bit... eccentric.

And while Mario Balotelli might like to think he's the most out there footballer in the world, we happily bet you that we can find a more bizarre one... like Faustino Asprilla.

Sure, he was little off the wall back in his short spell with Newcastle United but we think that all his time off has just left him to go madder than a box of frogs in a reverends trousers... and that's pretty mad.

We want you to try and think of what is the strangest thing you could imagine a footballer do in his spare time... have you got anything?

Well, if you said get dressed like a T-Rex and then teach a horse how to play football with a giant football, then you were absolutely spot on!

Yep, the former Colombian forward released a video of him and his horse learning how to play the beautiful game and it really is absolutely bonkers!

Just have a look at this madness:


We're still speechless... this really is absolutely quite amazing! So, Tino, have you got any reason for dressing up like a dinosaur and teaching a horse how to play football?

Good god, we love this man!
