Weird! Turkish Football Club Sells 18 Players To Buy 10 Goats

You won’t believe that there is a football club where 18 players are worth just 10 goats.

A football club in Turkey has sold 18 players to buy 10 goats in order to earn extra money from milk sales to take care of the clubs other priorities.

The Turkish football club Gulspor, which plays in one of the lower divisions of the national tournament, sold the youth players to spend the proceeds on buying 10 goats in a bid to mend the club’s finances, CNN reported on Thursday.

It was further reported by CNN that Gulspor made 15,000 Turkish lira (over $2,500) selling the players.

The money earned was spent to purchase 10 goats, which reportedly would help the club to make additional 5,000 Turkish lira ($830) in the future from goat milk sales.

Gulspor FC President Kenan Buyuklebleb told CNN that the financial swap of players for goats came as a result of the club’s poor finances.

“We will have more income,” Buyuklebleb said. “We have acted in the interests of the team and also contributed to the country’s economic development.”
