Former Evertonian Thomas Gravesen Heads to Las Vegas
Former Everton and Denmark midfielder Thomas Gravesen may not have had the most glittering of football careers, but he is looking to make up for it by moving to Las Vegas to live the high life with his stunning Czech-born American model girlfriend Kamila Persse.
During his career, battling midfielder Gravesen played for clubs such as Hamburg, Everton, Real Madrid and Scottish side Celtic before retiring from the beautiful game in January 2009 after being released by Celtic. At the time of his retirement, Gravesen was in a relationship with a porn star by the name of Kira Eggers, which prompted the Danish press to lambaste his decision to quit.
It’s fair to say that Gravesen earned a lot of money during his career, but it is what he did with those large wages that has set the Dane up for the rest of his life. According to an article on UK Eurosport, Gravesen invested his career earnings in a number of financial businesses and these investments came good, leaving the slick-headed 37-year old with a €100 million fortune!
Gravesen now plans to officially retire from all work-related activity so he can live a life of luxury in Las Vegas, Nevada, the perfect place to indulge in his passion for poker, roulette and blackjack.
Could we be seeing Gravesen at the 2014 World Series of Poker? We would say that it is highly likely the former Toffee will be gracing the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino with his imposing presence.
