A furious North-East car cleaner has taken to Twitter to urge Demba Ba to pay his £40 bill – after the striker apparently ducked out after moving to Chelsea.
Ba, who sealed a £7million move to the Blues last week, left many in Newcastle frustrated after he pushed through the transfer, but one Geordie has more reason to be furious that the rest.
Lee Donnelly – part of a company called LJD Valet – alleges that he cleaned Ba’s car before he headed to London to sign for Chelsea, and has never seen the money since.
Donnelly says Ba owes him £40, and took advantage of an #askba Twitter chat the striker was doing to try and request the funds.
‘#askba are u ever gonna pay me the £40 for valeting ur car? take it as a no as u moved away,’ he tweeted.
He then tried to appeal to Ba’s better nature, insisting that the £40 is nothing compared to the reported £90,000-a-week he is picking up at Stamford Bridge.
‘#AskBa the money u owe me is 0.0001% of ur daily wage sort it out ba’
