“I just want to know what I’ve done wrong” – Homeless Mom of Arsenal Player Living in a £700,000 Apartment Cries Out (Photos)

The mother of Arsenal Football Club player, Ainsley Maitland -Niles, who is rated at £15 million, has claimed she is homeless and sleeps in a 10-foot metal storage crate while her 20-year-old son lives in a £700,000 apartment.

Metro UK gathers that Jule Niles, 38, said her son who earns £30,000-a-week refused to be of any assistance to her.

The mother of two young men claims she has to sneak past staff at the Big Yellow Storage warehouse to sleep in the freezing container. Jule also said she spent Christmas Day there, cold and alone, before getting lunch at a nearby homeless centre.

The woman is reported to have been living in the box for three months after she had a misunderstanding with her football star son. He is also accused of refusing to serve as a guarantor so she could rent a flat.

“It’s a metal container with no windows or carpet. There is no toilet or washing facilities. It’s not a home. I know what home feels like – to be able to shower, brush your teeth and sit in your room.

Most of all, I miss my family. It’s horrible. I just want to know what I’ve done wrong. It is heartbreaking. The area is covered in snow and it’s not been above freezing for days. I heard a homeless man died here overnight on Thursday.”

It was also reported that the footballer’s mother spends her days sitting in coffee shops or the local library to stay warm and pays £2 to shower at a local swimming pool in a bid to hide that she’s homeless.

Jule who lives in fear at the warehouse, says: ”I wait until everyone has gone home and slip into the unit when it is dark.”

Ainsley signed for the club’s academy when he was six, and made his debut for The Gunners aged 17 in the Champions League against Galatasaray in 2014.
