Do Footballers Deserve Such Massive Salaries?

Yes, they work unbelievably hard every day on the training ground and the majority of them are top athletes, but is that enough reason for them to get paid the large sums of money they get? And the worst part about is that a lot of these people we call “role-models” demand more and more money almost every season.

The Fan Park crew discusses whether footballers deserve their massive wages.

Jack Wilshere

It’s a ‘small’ amount compared to others, but does Arsenal’s injury-prone midfielder deserve to walk away with over £90 000 a week? There is yet to be a time where he has set the Emirates alight – and he has been sidelined this season more than anything.

Radamel Falcao

The Colombian striker walks away with over £265,000 a week at Manchester United, making him one of the club's top earners. In return, the 29-year-old has scored just six goals in 20 appearances.

Fernando Torres

When the Spanish striker was at Chelsea, he was earning £175,000 a week. He had four long seasons where he produced lengthy goal droughts at Stamford Bridge, yet was paid as a top performer!

Mario Balotelli

Although he earns £80 000 a week at Liverpool, the Italian striker earned £140 000 a week at AC Milan. Yes, he has potential, but when will he actually live up to all the expectations?

Raheem Sterling

The exciting winger currently walks away with over £70 000 a week at Liverpool, but it’s said that he will be offered a contract of £100 000 a week! Sterling’s agent apparently asked for £160 000 a week, but was warned not to push his luck by Brendan Rodgers. After all, Sterling is just 20-yars-old!

Do you agree that footballers should be earning this much money? Let us know in the comments section below.
