Former West Brom striker donates the contents of his house to charity

West Brom's Markus Rosenberg made the great gesture after leaving the club earlier this month

Markus Rosenberg might not be a name that's too familiar to many football fans out there, unless they're really big West Bromwich Albion fans and remember a player who left the club without scoring a goal earlier this month after his contract was canceled by 'mutual consent'.

Whether mutual or not, that has nothing to do with the great gesture from the Swede upon leaving his luxury home in Solihull, as it turns out that he left the entire contents to charity for them to do with as they please.

The charity he chose was Sue Ryder, who provide care for those with long-term conditions and life-changing illnesses as well as support for those with end-of-life needs. According to The Guardian, the donation will make up several thousand pounds and not only includes furniture and electrical goods, but also everything from his kitchen, right down to the pots and pans.

He hasn't made a huge amount of noise about the donation, but he did retweet one of the many well wishers who were thanking him for helping out the charity on his official Twitter account.

He made 33 appearances for West Brom but never managed to find the back of the net, however with a gesture like this, he's sure to be held in high regard by Baggies fans for the next while at least.
