Luca Brecel “is no longer a millionaire” after visiting a garage: “He bought cars for 400,000 pounds” | Snooker

After winning his world title earlier this year, Luca Brecel had already rewarded himself with a Ferrari, which cost him around half of his World Cup prize money. As of this week, he also owns a Ranger Rover and a Porsche Taycan.

“That suddenly made me no longer a millionaire,” the Belgian laughed after his first-round victory at the UK Championship. “I spent £400,000 on those cars and it was a well-considered decision.”

“I wanted to recreate the feeling I had at the beginning of my career, where I felt the same pressure to perform. I needed some encouragement, and the realization that it was time to get back to work.”

“It has been my dream to become a world champion since I first picked up the idea when I was nine years old. Once I achieved this goal, the hunger subsided somewhat. It became difficult to motivate myself for each tournament. If I lost, I would go home with a smile. “

He added, “This is not good behavior. Something had to change. I wanted the hunger to achieve tournament victories again. I was tired of going out in the first rounds.”

“I want to get back to my best. For myself, but also for the people who want to see the world champion in action. I don’t want to disappoint them and I don’t want to disappoint myself.”

“Besides, I’m a bit tired of people saying I’m lazy. I seem to sometimes give the impression that I don’t care about snooker, even though it’s my passion. I love the sport and I love performing well and winning. Maybe I should show the latter more often.” “
