Rosenberg gifts possessions to charity

Former West Brom striker Markus Rosenberg has delighted a charity by donating the contents of his Solihull home following his move to Malmo.

The 31-year-old struggled with the Baggies and failed to score in 33 appearances with the Premier League club before leaving on a free transfer on Feb. 2.

After securing a move back to his native country with his hometown club, Rosenberg decided to give away expensive furniture, fittings and more to the Sue Ryder national charity.

The removal process took six hours on Monday, and the contents are set to be split between Sue Ryder branches in Sheldon, Harborne and Kings Heath.

Tracey Evans, stock generator of Sue Ryder shops in the area, told the Birmingham Mail: “I wasn’t a West Brom fan before, but I am now!

“When we had finished there were just the beds left for [Rosenberg’s family] to sleep in. They even offered us a 20 foot trampoline in the back garden, but we had nowhere to put it.

“It is all good stuff -- a lot of the furniture is minimalistic. We really are so grateful because we are so desperate for furniture.

“As a charity, we have to sell items at a low price, but we expect the donation to fetch around 3,500 pounds.

“He and his wife were wonderful. I think it is really nice that he thought about our charity.”

Rosenberg has played for the likes of Ajax, Werder Bremen and Racing Santander before struggling at the Hawthorns in a two-year spell, but thanked West Brom and their fans for his time in England upon his departure.
