Footballers are usually known for the huge amount of money they earn, which makes them some of the richest people in the world. The likes of Ronaldo, Messi and other super-stars earned their fortune over the years through hard work on the pitch and recognition outside the pitch (in terms of endorsements), which always keep the cash coming.
Messi and Ronaldo are the richest footballers in terms of earnings.
But what happens when someone is not necessarily playing for money? Like, he doesn’t need a salary because he’s even worth more than any club he could possibly play for? Meet Faiq Bolkiah who is so rich that he wouldn’t mind playing for free.
Faiq Bolkiah is the richest footballer in terms of net-worth.
Faiq Bolkiah is a 22-year-old footballer who currently plays for Moireinse in the Portuguese top league and the Bruneinational team. He is a prince from the kingdom of Brunei, with a networth of a whooping $20billion.
￼￼The former Leicester city man is considered as the richest footballer in the world. Though the title is not like that of other footballers whose net worth are calculated by earnings, Faiq is the richest simply because he was born into wealth.
Faiq Bolkiah might not necessarily bother if he’s having a great career or not, as he might as well end up as king of Brunei one day. The rich prince must be humble enough to receive a pay check of whatever amount his club is currently paying him, as he’s worth billions of dollars to in the first place.
Kudos to him.
