Tiny Shaun Wright Phillips shows off his new big car..a £200,000 Rolls Royce Ghost

If anyone needed any more proof that our Premiership footballers get paid far too much money, then Shaun Wright Phillips has just provided it.

The Manchester City striker today showed off his latest purchase as he arrived for training in his shiny new car.

And the 28-year-old couldn't contain his smug grin as he pulled into the Carrington complex in the £200,000 Rolls Royce Ghost.

But what onlookers found even funnier was the sight of the pint-sized star peering over the top of the steering wheel, the car clearly too big for the 5ft 5in winger.

The shiny black vehicle swamped the footballer who looked really tiny in the front seat.

So surely something smaller could have easily sufficed and had less of a dent on his pay packet - although he probably wouldn't have even noticed.

He was the first owner of the 2008 BMW 3 Series M Sport convertible, which  is powered by a 218bhp 3-litre engine and sold at the time for £40,670 – plus £5310 of options.

Before that, he was also lucky enough to be the first owner of the was the 2002 Range Rover Vogu.

It cost him £70,000 and he added a PlayStation 2, two DVD screens and a fold down TV, a sub-woofer and a set of 20-inch alloy wheels which cost an additional £1,495.

Other features included £2,700 leather seats, sat-nav, heated windscreen, bi-xenon headlights, parking sensors and a six-CD Harmon Kardon sound system.

His £60,000 a week wage does seems like an obscene amount of money, especially as Shaun has struggled to start the season with the Northern club, which is currently fourth in the Premier League and has only scored once for them since the season began.
