Andreas Pereira Has 'Tiki-Taka Legend' On His £5,000 iPhone
When Andreas Pereira isn't annoying Manchester United fans for constantly giving the ball away on the pitch, he's irritating them with his choice of text on his iPhone.
A day removed from another below-par performance in the 0-0 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he lost possession 14 times at Old Trafford, the Brazilian midfielder posted a picture of his £5,000 24k gold & white iPhone 11 Pro on Instagram.
And a little zoom in shows that on the phone, the United No.15 has his initials accompanied by the words "tiki-taka legend".
Tiki-taka was the term given to describe Barcelona and Spain's quick, fluid passing game and we think it's fair to say Pereira, who averages just 32 passes per game in the Premier League this term, is nowhere near close to mastering the style.
He is, however, just one of a number of footballers to have customised 24K gold iPhones from iDesign Gold.
The Irish company had previously provided the luxury item to Lionel Messi and several of his Barcelona teammates, as well as as Manchester City trio Kevin De Bruyne, Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker.
All 27 players of Liverpool's Champions League winning squad as well as manager Jurgen Klopp each received a glitzy bespoke gift - which is personalised with the name and squad number of each player, as well as the Champions League and Madrid final logos.
