TOP 10…Let´s start counting down.

Long ago, playing for your club, your country, meant leaving blood, sweat and tears in the field, and that was the dream of every professional football player. Still, today the greatest names in football fill tabloid pages from the wrong reasons. In common for all affairs is money. Footballers are not (just) athletes any more, now they have a status as celebrities, entertainers.

Since 1980’s to the beginning of 1990’s player’s pay increased dramatically, and footballer’s life turned to affairs, stories about girls and champagne. In last couple of decades, football players got used to astronomical paychecks, fast cars and huge mansions, but this wasn’t always the case. In the middle of the 20th century, top English football players earned annually about 1 700 pounds, which according to today’s value of money would be 75 000 pounds annually. For comparison, today an average English football player earns that much-weekly! Professional practicing of football in England was legalized in 1885, and in 1901 a maximum of 4 pounds a week was set as a pay for professional players. After more than 100 years the story is quite different. Clubs seem to be racing to pay more money for football player’s transfers.
