Newcastle legend Asprilla turned down ‘tiny contract offer’ to film porn

Newcastle United legend Faustino Asprilla was once offered a tiny sum of money to shoot porn but chose to turn down the offer.

The retired Colombian striker is an eccentric character and has built a reputation with his off-field antics both during and after his playing days.

In 2007, he appeared on the front cover of Colombian men's magazine SoHo wearing nothing but a pair of angel wings and hired a porn star to attend his 50th birthday party in 2019.

However, it was almost Asprilla himself that became a porn star back in 2013 after he was offered a contract.

The Sun reported in 2018 that Asprilla had been offered 20million pesos, or £6,500, by producers in his native Colombia for a one-week contract.

Asprilla said that producers had told him that they were “convinced that with a little training you could exploit another talent all of Colombia knows you have”.

However, the former Parma and Newcastle forward turned down the producers' offer.

'Tino' endeared himself to the Toon Army during his two years on Tyneside, scoring 18 goals for the club in 63 appearances in black and white.

This included a hat-trick at home to Barcelona in the Champions League as well as five goals in six matches during their run to the UEFA Cup quarter-finals.

Asprilla scored against Halmstad before braces against Ferencvaros and Metz during the 1996/97 season.

He had two successful spells in Italy with Parma either side of his Premier League stay, winning two UEFA Cups and the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup with the Italian side.

Asprilla also appeared at the 1994 and 1998 World Cups with Colombia as well as being in their squad for the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona.

Overall, he won 58 caps for his country and scored a total of 20 goals in the process.
