Tyson Fury’s comments on shopping at Aldi and Lidl say a lot about the man he is
| Last updated
Tyson Fury has admitted that he gets some stick for shopping in budget supermarkets but insists that he doesn’t live ‘like rich people’ and is happy to snap up a bargain.
Imagine bumping into him in the middle aisle, eh?
“Everywhere I go people say they don’t expect to see me there and it’s not like there’s a special celebrity place to go shopping. We don’t live like rich people.”
Once again showcasing his humble attitude, the heavyweight went on to say that while he does go to the odd ‘posh restaurant’ he’s equally as happy in the Wacky Warehouse or an ‘all-you-can-eat for a fiver’. Aren't we all?
Fury went on to reveal that he’s such a bargain hunter that he will refuse to buy items at full price.
“I’m not gonna pay £3.50 for a pack of KitKats that’s usually on offer, no way! No matter how much money I’ve got I just won’t do it because it’s not in me to do so," he added.
His most recent money-saving comments are nothing out of the ordinary for Fury - all the way back in 2019, he told the BBC that money doesn’t bring him happiness.
Speaking three years after revealing he had been battling depression, Fury explained: "I might sound like a hypocrite here but I really don't care - there's only a certain amount you can spend in life. I have found true happiness within myself.
"I have really found out that happiness doesn't come from achievements or assets. It comes from within, with contentment of who you are.
"I can't be happier. If I had another 10 zeros on my bank balance it couldn't make me happier. I can only wear these shoes and sleep in one bed. You can only drive one car - if it's a Rolls Royce or piece of rubbish, they all do the same thing."
