Twelve Watches Ought to Do It

Jefferson Farfan

I Farfan'd Myself

Forget Lionel Messi. Jefferson Farfan is the new Maradona. No, it’s not in how the Peruvian plays the game that he garners such high esteem, but rather in his preposterous behavior.

While Maradona only left Italy with two fewer watches back in 2006, Farfan might be set to lose more than two.

You see, the Schalke 04 winger returned to Peru for today’s international match with Costa Rica and was promptly detained by authorities due to an ongoing child support dispute with his ex-girfriend.  If Farfan is unable to resolve the issue quickly, he might miss his side’s clash with VfB Stuttgart next week.

Where’s the idiocy, you ask?

In the linked story, the ex-girfriend is seeking at least €50,000 a month in child support. Farfan claims he only earns €1,300 a month.

Splashed all over German sites is a recent TV interview Farfan gave in which he boasted of his three luxuries cars (a Bentley means you’re ballin’), extravagant shopping sprees in Italy, and a collection of watches valued at between 50-80 thousand euros each.

The best part about the interview is that it was for a Peruvian TV station! And yes, I’m assuming this is the same TV interview that got Farfan fined by Schalke.The Lima police, obviously, did not have to translate German to figure out Farfan’s claim of poverty is a load.

So, remember, professional footballers—if you have a problem at home with your baby’s mama and just made her even madder by having an affair with a possible porn star but just cannot resist bragging about all your bling—stick to interviews with Ukranian television. Oh, and stay away from Peru. I hear New England is nice this time of year.

    I hate it when people reproduce…at least those that don’t want kids or want to take care of them. Have them vacumed out before it gets to this. Ri-diculous.

  2. Charley

    50,000 a month seems incredibly high. is that a normal amount and i just don’t know anything about child support, or is the ex girlfriend asking for as much as she can get?

  3. Mountain Wag

    @Charley – that’s 50k EUROS (which is more like $70k US). That’s mothaf**kin’ high, but then again, that’s how he got himself into this mess…

  4. @ Charley: Yes, that’s a fairly silly number in its own right. It seems she is asking for as much as she can prior to the two sides reaching some agreed-upon amount. I’m guessing it’ll be somewhere between the 0 Farfan is offering and the 50K she’s demanding.

  5. Mountain Wag

    @Charley – it’s based off a percentage of how much you earn. The more you earn, the more you’d pay. That’s why smart doctors with bitchy ex-wives find themselves happily working at McDonalds saying “would you like fries with that”.

    That first comment is unbelievably offensive. I don’t come here to read that kind of stuff.

  7. Mountain Wag

    @Travis – not meant to offend, just a statement of fact as I see and deal with unwanted kids daily, and their parents having them didn’t do anyone any favors. It makes me sad. Plus, so many of the non-married women we come across in stories here are extremely likely to only be having the kid to get the paycheck from the player for the next 18 years. That offends me.

  8. Charley

    @MW i see now. it makes sense now that it is that high, what with his bentley and what i’m sure he is wearing as we speak, an incredibly shiny piece of bling, possibly with his name on it…or at least his initials.

    @OM thanks for the clarification

  9. Travis


    I can understand why that is so frustrating. Frustrates me as well. I just was asking for a little more delicacy when talking about the pretty sensative issue of abortion.

  10. Mountain Wag

    @Travis – noted and sorry. As a female, abortions are kind of our ‘jurisdiction’. It was my assumption that if it didn’t offend me, it probably wouldn’t the males here. But your point is entirely valid. Apologies.

  11. Travis


    No worries. I love the blog, and didn’t want anything to taint that. Thanks for not ignoring my thoughts.

  12. Anonsters

    @MW: In short, stick to pictures of puppies and all shall be well.

  13. WhoNeedsForwards

    So, I looked up that ‘possible porn star’ because, well, I’m male, and saw Giovanni Dos Santos in quite a few of those pictures too. Just for that one obnoxious Spurs fan.
