Markus Rosenberg Donates Entire Contents Of House To Charity After Having West Brom Contract Terminated

By Chris Wright

Soccer - Barclays Premier League - West Bromwich Albion v Reading - The Hawthorns

After having his West Brom contract mulched by mutual consent, Markus Rosenberg agreed a deal to move back to his native Sweden with Malmo earlier in the week and, as a result, decided to donate the entire contents of his house in Solihull to charity.

The furniture haul was so large that it had to be split between three branches of Sue Ryder charity shops, with Rosenborg donating a large amount of bespoke furniture and fittings, a couple of his Albion kits, cutlery and even kitchen utensils and crockery.

Tracey Evans, stock generator for Sue Ryder (who initially though Rosenberg’s phone call was a wind-up), told the Birmingham Mail:

“I wasn’t a West Brom fan before, but I am now! When we had finished (collecting the furniture) there were just the beds left for them to sleep in.

“They even offered us a 20 foot trampoline in the back garden, but we had nowhere to put it.

“It is all good stuff – a lot of the furniture is minimalistic. We really are so grateful because we are so desperate for furniture.

“As a charity, we have to sell items at a low price, but we expect the donation to fetch around £3,500.

“He and his wife were wonderful. I think it is really nice that he thought about our charity.”

Now, it’s hard to describe Rosenberg as being anything other than an unremitting dud during his two seasons at the Hawthorns, but he sure signed off in commendable style – potentially raising a few grand for charity.

Here’s hoping he re-finds his feet at Malmo.

    It’s RosenbErg, not RosenbOrg.

    Surely she should be a Malmo fan, rather than Brom….

  3. George says:

    Whilst he did not have the best time on the pitch no-one can complain about his behaviour whilst at the club. He appears to have given it good honest craic and not a negative word has been presented via Twitter/Facebook & co. Good luck to him at Malmo and I hope he shines.

    Hopefully Fellaini does the same when he moves back to Belgium
