David Bentley quits ‘boring football’ to focus on La Sala

FOOTBALLER David Bentley has retired from the game aged 29 to focus on his Costa del Sol bar and restaurant business, La Sala group.

Once hailed as the next David Beckham, the former Tottenham midfielder claimed football has become ‘robotic and boring’.

“I’ve fallen out of love with the game,” he admitted. “The social media and the money have made it boring, predictable and a bit too calculated.”

Meanwhile, La Sala is supporting two if its shareholders in their world cup exploits with the England team.

Youngsters Raheem Sterling and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be hoping they are more successful in business than at the World Cup, with England crashing out in the group stages.
