Sunderland striker Connor Wickham splashes out on mega-bottle of champagne in Marbella

WHEN there’s a €17,500 golden bottle of champagne doing the rounds at a Marbella pool party, there’s usually a premiership footballer behind it.

And it was Sunderland striker Connor Wickham’s turn to splash the cash at Marbella’s glitzy Ocean Club this week, where he rang up a €25,000 bar bill, equivalent to his weekly pay cheque.

Wickham celebrated keeping his club in the Premiership last season by sharing the 15-litre mega bottle with friends and waiters, while posing for topless photos.

The luxurious Armand de Brignac brand is rated the number one champagne in the world, and is a favourite of American rap star Jay Z.

Simply carrying the enormous bottle around will have helped big-spending Wickham get in shape for pre-season training, which begins this week.
