Top 5 Footballers From A Wealthy Family (Photos)

Wages for footballers are a source of considerable debate, but only a small fraction of ambitious players make it, and the hard work they put in deserves to be rewarded.

However, not every player had to wait until they were a professional to get wealthy. Some players were born with a silver spoon in their mouth and didn't have to wait for the opportunity to spend it.

1. Gerard Pique

Gerard Pique is married to Colombian pop star Shakira and has won everything there is to win with Barcelona, but he is no stranger to success.

Joan, the Spaniard's father, is a lawyer and businessman, while Montserrat, the Spaniard's mother, is the director of a hospital in Barcelona. Amador Bernabeu, his grandfather, was a former director at Barcelona.

2. Robin van Persie

Robin van Persie's creativeness was frequently displayed on the football field, therefore it should come as no surprise that both of his parents are artists.

Bob, his father, is a successful sculptor, and Jose Ras, his mother, is a painter and jewellery designer. The former Arsenal and Manchester United striker has chosen a different path in his career.

3. Andrea Pirlo

The Italian superstar has stated several times that he does not play for money. He's never needed it, and he's limited himself to football because it's his favorite sport.

4. Oliver Bierhoff

Oliver Bierhoff, a former Germany forward who played for AC Milan and earned 70 caps for his country, may have inherited his work ethic from his father.

Dr Rolf Bierhoff, the CEO of an energy company, made sure that his son had all he needed as a child.

5. Frank Lampard

Lampard was born into a footballing family. He is the nephew of Harry Redknapp, the famed manager. Frank Richard George Lampard, Lampard's father, was also connected to the footballer, who spent the majority of his career at West Ham United.
