While many of English football’s multi-millionaire superstars throughly enjoy showing off their bling and crave attention, the Spanish winger is clearly not that sort of chap.
Famously shy, Navas actively avoids the limelight. So much so, in fact, that he goes out of his way to blend in with the public. How else do we explain an insanely wealthy footballer choosing to drive around in a Nissan Micra?
But wait. Before you scoff and laugh, consider this: Navas’ choice of automobile is actually perfect. He’s basically bought the motoring version of himself.
A Nissan Micra: The Jesus Navas of the car world
Think about it. It’s small. It’s nippy. It’s deceptively quick. And ultimately, it’s largely disappointing when compared to what you could have got instead.

We’re all for this new idea of footballers driving the car which best resembles their style of play. In fact, it should be compulsory. To begin with, the following players should be forced to drive the following vehicles:
Yaya Toure – Range Rover

Theo Walcott – Alfa Romeo
Looks great and goes super fast – but likely to break down at any point.
Gareth Barry – Skoda.
Much derided, but actually remarkably reliable.
James Milner – Volvo
Surprisingly durable and effective – despite the fact it makes wet-paint-watching look exciting.
Per Mertesacker – Tractor
