How Long The PSL's Stars Take To Pay Off Their Cars

South African footballers have a love for cars, and they can often be found driving around in the best rides, but how long, in terms of games, do they take to pay off their vehicles?

A study conducted by Carspring recently analysed how many minutes are necessary to discover how long it would take the likes of Siphiwe Tshabalala and Mpho Makola to pay off their rides. 

To calculate the playing time needed to pay for their car, the annual salary of the player was divided by the number of games played in his respective league, and from this, a salary per minute rate was acquired.

The list, which had the likes of La Liga stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale, as well as players from Serie A, Bundesliga and the Premier League on it, also featured five South African stars and their cars.

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Willard Katsande would need 16 hours and 58 seconds to pay off his Nissan, which amounts to playing just over 10 games for the club. Easy stuff for the Zimbabwean!

Interestingly, despite Tshabalala's impressive salary, his car would only take two hours less than his teammate's to pay off. At least he doesn't have to pay off his sponsored Lexus, though!

Eager to see how long it would take Brighton Mhlongo, Kgotso Moleki, Makola and "Shabba" to pay off their cars? Browse the gallery above!

Are you surprised by these figures?

*Note: some of the players have changed or acquired new cars since the study was published.
