ARE FOOTBALLERS OVERPAID?

Pledge Sports are here to answer the question that’s been much publicised lately , “Are footballers overpaid? The last 10 years in world football has seen the biggest transfers ever to be made. More and more ” RICH OWNERS ARE TAKING OVER CLUBS” and we are seeing more and more disloyalty among clubs and players do not play for the badge anymore but instead the pay cheque . With more and more money continuously being pumped into the football economy , we cannot see the average player salary decreasing any time soon. In fact over recent years it seems money is not an issue anymore. The $3.6m average salary is Premier League player double equivalent figure in the German Bundesliga and France’s Ligue . Players in Spain’s La Liga earn an average of $2.4m annually , while the figure for Italy’s Serie A is $1.9m. Lets compare the average salary of the Premier League amongst other sports-

With Mesut Ozil closing out his deal in January 2018 , he now will remain at Arsenal until the end of 2021 season , earning a massive Rs 3,59,70,251 per week . the staggering fact is now only second in the highest prier league earners with Alexis Sanchez move to Manchester United has guaranteed him rs 5,13,86,079a week before tax and an estimated rs 2,67,20,76 annually . Whether the players deserve this insane amount of moneydue to their talent alone is what is up for DEABTE and depends on talent , debate, career length. In last , It seems no matter the result of debate , it cannot be denied that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. fFor the elite footballers in the world, they are earing extreme amount of money from not only playing football but huge endorsements deals and sponsorships else where . As for the lower league players across the world, it can be extremely difficult to find these deals and bounces i.e ., however you could argue the best get paid the best and rest will have to fight for the scraps!! So I guess the debate could go on and on.. The Biggest athlete sponsorship deal in sport are pledge sports in the global leader in crowd funding & sponsorships for sport.
