Because the contract was only for a small sum, a Newcastle legend turned down the chance to film pornography.


Faustino Asprilla, a Newcastle United legend, was once offered a pittance to shoot pornography but declined.

The retired Colombian striker has a reputation for his off-field antics, both during and after his playing career.

He wore nothing but angel wings on the front cover of Colombian men’s magazine SoHo in 2007, and he invited a porn star to his 50th birthday party in 2019.

After being offered a contract in 2013, Asprilla almost became a porn star himself.

Producers in Asprilla’s native Colombia offered him 20 million pesos ($6,500) for a one-week contract, according to The Sun in 2018.

Producers told Asprilla that they were “convinced that with a little training, you could exploit another talent that everyone in Colombia knows you have,” according to Asprilla.

The producer’s offer was turned down by the former Parma and Newcastle forward.

During his two years on Tyneside, ‘Tino’ endeаred himself to the Toon Army, scoring 18 goаls in 63 gаmes for the club.
