Top Players performing in European Leagues get huge Payout

In the world football, there are certain players that receive a substantially high income for their services. For players who are performing in top European Leagues, it has become a standard and nothing surprising to see luxury cars and houses being acquired by these players.

A few days ago there was released a list of the top 10 best paid footballers which includes the likes of: Thiago Silva who earns $30 million, Robin van Persie who receives around $28 million and not surprisingly Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo was also included in this list of the highest earning players in the world of football.

However, not all the players have the privilege of earning as much money as those previously mentioned. There are a number of factors that interfere in the amount of cash that a player receives; this depends on how good the footballer actually is and in the club that he is performing in.

Some clubs have a bigger wallet which allows them to pay higher wages but the Danish Football Association (DBU) is planning on cutting the payments of their international players by 17%, this is something that the Danish players hope that doesn’t occur and this is why a number of meetings and talks have been made in order to help resolve this situation but these meeting have ended in a stalemate and now the Danish players have started to accuse the Football Association to be wasting time and have tried to make the footballers to look like fools.

One of the players who has critiqued what has been going on is the former Liverpool player, Daniel Agger as he said: ‘It is incomprehensible that they announce that they want to meet…and then they still will not negotiate collective agreements when it comes to the crunch’’

The senior Danish team has a number of matches to play in the upcoming months as they are attempting to advance into the rounds of the 2016 Euro’s but it has now been revealed that the players who do not agree with this wage cut will not be selected to perform for the Danish national side.
