We’ve all heard stories of people blindingly following their GPS navigation systems only to end up in embarrassing or even dangerous situations. This is one of those stories; except it involves a celebrity whose name is Andre…Wisdom.
A proud owner of a £100,000 Porsche Panamera Turbo, the Liverpool FC footballer, who has recently been offered on loan to Derby County, was stuck in a mud puddle after a satnav error landed him in it!
Since he was driving to a home match he had to play in, Wisdom abandoned the car and called people from his club, who rushed to pick him up and transferred him to the stadium just in time for the game against Sheffield Wednesday.
Wisdom’s car was later spotted by a mountain biker in the middle of remote woods. The man couldn’t explain how the Porsche ended up there. “It’s mind boggling how it got there – it’s miles from anywhere,” he told The Mirror.
Wisdom was reportedly driving on the outskirts of Derby when he lost his way. “Andre visited a shop on the way to the game against Sheffield Wednesday and, being new to the area, he programmed the stadium’s postcode into his satnav,” said a club spokesman. “The route provided took him down a less than traditional road, where conditions were poor,” he added.
As this happened in Shakespeare’s country, let’s just say all’s well that ends well. Wisdom helped his team to a 3-0 win, and he recovered his car that evening. However, it may need some repairs after the off-road incursion. How about a Cayenne, Mr. Wisdom?
