Futebol Finance’s 100 Best Paychecks (2011)By: The Offside | April 26th, 2011
Did you know that if you Google Image ‘euros’, somewhere on that page manifests a picture of Michael Schumacher?
Is this how one knows you’ve really made it? When you face is interchangeable for money?
I can’t quite think of a more apt description of ‘making it’.
A fitting photo, as Futebol Finance, one of the few authorities on these matters, has released their annual list of ‘people you wish you were’: football’s 100 most amply compensated.
As ever, few surprises at the top, though Roman Abramovich must be loving Fernando Torres’ current yearly pace of €5m per goal.
(Edin Dzeko is far more fiscally conscious at €3.25m/g.)
