Manchester United’s stars refuse to drive the Chevrolet Stingrays and Camaros

Article by Christian A., on November 3, 2014

As you may know already, Chevrolet is the official sponsor of Manchester United football team and just like any other company, it offered free cars for the team’s player as they needed to let people see the stars are driving their vehicles. Still, this didn’t go according to the American carmaker’s plan as Manchester United’s stars didn’t want to drive Chevrolet’s vehicles and preferred to drive their own cars.

As a result, 15 vehicles delivered by Chevrolet in April, including Camaros and Stingrays, are sitting unused in a corner of the Carrington car park. This happens after Chevrolet paid a hefty 47 million pounds to have its name on Manchester United’s shirts.

Stars like Robin van Persie drives his Porsche Panamera to the team’s training ground, while Wayne Rooney arrives in his Range Rover customized by Overfinch. Ryan Giggs also drives a Range Rover, while midfielder Marouane Fellaini arrives in a Mercedes-Benz M-Class.

Meanwhile, manager Louis van Gall drives a Chevrolet Captiva, but it is a vehicle which he bought and not a free one from Chevrolet. According to a source, the Chevrolet cars are used only by the training ground staff.

However, a Chevrolet spokesman said that the players are not forced to drive the cars and this is just a voluntary drive programme. [source: dailymail.co.uk]
