Inside football's tackiest homes including £100k fish tank, Versace dining table and orange snooker table owned by Ryan Giggs, Andy Carroll and Samir Nasri

RYAN GIGGS put his house up for sale earlier this year and shocked us with his Prince-inspired purple pad.

The £3.5million five-bed Cheshire mansion is on the market after he and ex-wife Stacey finalised their divorce.

The Manchester United legend's decadent decor inspired us to dig through the archives and peer inside other footballers' homes to find the best, or worst, that money has to buy.

From pink bedrooms to underground swimming pools and built-in nightclubs these Prem stars have it all under their roofs.

Andy Carroll has a built-in hair salon for his flowing locks, while Phil Bardsley had the floor replaced with glass to see the level below.

Be warned – there's a lot of velvet ahead…

Andy Carroll

Our first stop has to be Essex… where else?

The West Ham star and his former Towie missus Billie Mucklow seem to love the colour pink – it's everywhere – as is the standard crushed velvet carpet throughout.

Stephen Ireland

You shouldn't be surprised that the man who once boasted a Range Rover with a full pink interior and alloys would be on this list.

The £3.95million Cheshire mansion had a mini astroturf pitch and £100,000 fish tank.

Phil Bardsley

Anyone who has seen an episode of the Real Housewives of Cheshire will know that Tanya Bardsley likes the fine things in life.

For their former Wilmslow mansion, that included an indoor hot tub and huge personal dressing room.

Phil Neville

Proof that even the most average of footballers can afford the most ostentatious of homes.

We're only joking, of course, but Phil Neville's £4million Buckinghamshire mansion to new levels of mock aristocratic extravagance to a new level.

Ashley Ward

Another member of The Real Housewives of Cheshire set, Dawn Ward is also a property developer.

Apparently they couple had been struggling to sell Warford Hall in Alderley Edge, Cheshire, for five years before finally getting rid of it – we can't think why.

Samir Nasri

Samir Nasri eventually sold this sprawling mansion for £5.75million in March 2017.

The eight-bedroom Alderley Edge estate – which boasts an indoor nightclub, huge wine cellar and steam room – sat on 32-acres and was described as 'unashamedly opulent' on the listing.

Ryan Giggs

The Wales boss took us by surprise with his purple-themed pad, which is up for sale for £3.5million.

As well as the Prince-inspired dining room and cinema room, Giggsy's gaff has five bedrooms, a cinema and an indoor pool, and is located down a private road.
