What do you mean Milan is hiding something? Milan is a private company held by Berlusconi and he is free to do whatever the hell he likes with the company and he doesnt have to disclose anything.

This season I don't think anybody at Milan has pulled his weight and I can understand perfectly why Marina Berlusconi is pissed off. From a Financial point of view, they are getting fucked by the players performances.

I think the best run clubs in football are prolly Lyon and Bayern together with Real Madrid. Real Madrid does an unreal job in making money on merchandising and in TV rights etc. which enables them to overpay over the hill losers. But at least they can justify it cos they get billions back in TV revenues and merchandising.

But as berlusconi owns the rights to the milan games through his mediaset empire, he doesnt generate the same amount of money from his TV rights. Maybe this is why they are a bit reluctant to shelll out the cash for players anymore. Maybe if he could also work out a deal where they can sell Milan rights for a billion dollars, he too could stop worrying about his cashflows.

price Waterhouse recently released a report that said Milan has the third highest revenues after Real and Man U. If so, we most certainly are spedning this money very unwisely 'cos except for Kaka, who do we have to show as a bondfide superstar?

We're forgetting that footballers can only work till they're 35-40. Apart from a handful of retired players who successfully make into coaching staffs or as TV-presenters/football analysts, most will still have families to support (including their above-average maintenance wives, children to send to school, etc). In this respect, I can understand why players flock to money as they have little time to earn it before they go back to normal ordinary work. The average football player’s salary is not too over the top, considering most of us 'unlucky' ones will have a steady job till we are 55-60. Players at the big clubs could be compared to our future managers, CEOs, etc.

LOL Man, you got good posts, but this one certainly isn't one of them.

Football players get enough money that if they spend their whole life spending it wouldn't finish...C'mon, when you take 15 Million/year or 10 Million or even 8 Million, that's too much...

Some people don't have enough money to feed their kids...

and you say football players don't get enough money for the rest of their life...pathetic

The players not only get the wage pay but they also have some win bonus and goal bonus or even high appearacne fee ! Also, the football players can become famous star and then some company will ask them make ads for them, which can earn a lot of money. Some football players also use their money do the business like Kaladze has a restaurant in Milan and some hotels in a country, Gattuso has a shop about the cloth and i think all the cloths are number 8. The smarties is Billy in my opinion, he shares in stock and earn a lot of money.

Of course these are the elite players that are winning more than they should, but let's go around and look for the rest, most of them (needless to say the sorry ass salaries small team players get in my country, and in here those players get zero for ads, and probably dedicated to football cause that's really really the only thing they can do, and they aren't that great at, so yeah they earn little + after they retire at 35 they have to become taxi drivers). But yeah in general football being the most important sport in the world, well the salaries the players get aren't even near of those like Tiger or Alex Rodriguez (or throw any NBA+NFL+MLB name).

That's what is wrong, their salaries, I can live with, winning for merchandizing their names, whatever, but bonuses for doing what they have to...just wrong.


FM salaries: Favalli + Oliveira's are probably the ones that I just can't believe...those can't be too acurate.

Well guys, thousand apologies for the bad post But, I was referring to the average player, of which are the majority and don't play in first divisions (forget the big European powerhouses). I know a few footballers here in Romania (playing in the second division) that don't get paid much. Considering the risk injuries + traveling have on a player's career and family, I think most are underpaid.

But I do agree with you about players in bigger (first division) clubs. As I mentioned, we could compare them to the few CEOs or managers compared to their many envious subordinates. But yeah, the massive amounts of money in the game (at higher levels) today have taken its toll on a player's attitude towards the game and clubs.

The moral: Stay in school

Another Chelsea summer import, Michael Ballack, completes the top 10 with with a relatively modest figure of £18m despite his £130,000-a-week deal.

well now we know that FM is a false information for sure :P

Dida gets under 2,7 million pounds or like that:


The Brazilian has allegedly asked for a £3.2m per season deal, whereas the Rossoneri are not willing to offer any more than £2.7m.
