Top players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney could earn even more in the future despite the introduction of rules designed to curb financial ill discipline.
£200,000-a-week is more than double what 90% (estimate, not an actual statistic) of the world's population earns in a year. Wow... Just...Wow...
90% of the worlds population earn around £100,000 a year? That can't be true. But yeah I really want there to be a limit on players wages, it's getting ridiculous. Hopefully FIFA can do... ah forget it, their useless.
Ok, I worded that wrong. I meant to imply that less than 10% of the world's population earns £100,000 or more a year, and these dudes who do nothing more than kick a ball around a patch of grass are earning more than double that each week. I'm just guessing with the percentage figure. I don't know any real ones.
Yeah that sounds more about right, money now controls football and players don't seem to care where they go unless the money is right.
This is wrong. 1. They players are not worth it. 2. It will destroy clubs. 3. It will destroy football. 4. it will destroy young players mind when starting a career. I could continue this to 100s points...this is wrong.
We watch because of the players. The players earn the money they are entitled to.
we watch because of the passion of football. The players can play on the same level with 10% of that sort of money.
So who should get that 90% Board Members? Staff? They have careers for life. A footballers career can be over in 10 years and some can be in 1. We pay to watch players and they deserve the money they get.
huge earnings lead to corruption in football betting system should also be looked at
