Football (Soccer) is one the most lucrative occupation in the world after Tennis. Soccer players are often referred to as kings, GOAT and even gods depending on the stats of the player being mentioned. Aside from the fame and popularity, being a soccer makes you affluent!
The greatest soccer players of all time which includes Messi, Ronald, Neymar etc. weren’t just skilled in playing football or entertaining the audience, but were also rated as the world’s richest athletes after Roger Federer – who is the best Male Tennis Player. They live extravagantly spending on almost anything and everything they see, these football players have lots of cars and mansion.
But, have you heard of Faiq Jefri Bolkiah? No? That’s normal given the 22-years-old player has never played in an official competition! However, there’s one area where he beats Messi, Neymar and Ronaldo – Faiq Jefri Bolkiah is described as “The World’s Richest Football player in the World”, with an estimated net worth of US$20 billion! According to Forbes 2020 Roger Federe is regarded as the riches athletes with an estimated net worth of $106.3 million, Ronaldo comes after him with an estimated net worth of $105, while Messi ha an estimated net worth of $104 and Neymar has an estimated net worth of $95.5, but this Brunei prince net worth is valued at US$20 billion (amazing, right?) The reason the offensive midfielder is so rich without being a football superstar is because he’s the son of the Prince of Brunei as well as the nephew of the Sultan of the oil-rich country! A Brunei International, who had spells in the youth teams at Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester, he signed a contract with Portuguese club Maritimo in September 2020, in the hopes of making it into the professional game.
So, next time someone asks you – who’s the riches footballer in the world? Don’t say Ronaldo or Messi, just simply say Faiq and direct them to my article for proof.
