Gone are the days when playing a sport professionally was not considered a profession. Sports has always been underrated, generally due to the fact that children tend to ignore their studies. Studies have long been given more importance than sports. In recent times, many sports have gained a lot of popularity and more and more people are taking up the thought of making it a profession.

Football is one sport that has always been popular due to the team spirit, aggression it involves and also the larger-than-life lifestyle of players. It would be completely wrong to say that Footballers don’t get paid well. Apart from the salaries, they earn handsomely from the brand endorsements and even bonuses. Brand endorsements are completely normal for players these days as they are more popular than the movie stars. As 2018 has recently passed by we also saw a lot of Footballers climbing up the ladder of worth. Read on to know about 10 most richest Footballers in the world.
