See the richest footballer in the world and it is not Ronaldo or Messi

Football as we know it is one of the biggest sports in the world and it has many high paid players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eden Hazard, Neymar jr. and the likes.

People often argue that Ronaldo is the richest or Messi is richer because of their high earnings. But it is not all about salaries, endorsements, ownership of hotels and all other things, but it is about their net-worth. This footballer we are going to talk about is actually the richest footballer in the world and even richer than the richest man in Africa in person of Aliko Dangote.

We are about to present the name of the richest footballer in the world and his name is…

Ok, so we are glad to present the name of the richest footballer in the world in person of Faiq Bolkiah. I am sure not many people have heard of him that well but we are going to talk a little about him. 

Faiq Bolkiah is a 22 year old who is a professional footballer currently playing for Leicester City as he plays the role on the Midfield. He is also the captain of his national team Brunei (an oil-rich country). His country is said to be one of the five richest countries in the world with a very high GDP. He was born 9, May 1998. He has played for teams such as AFC Newbury, Southampton, Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester City in his youthful years, he then moved to being a part of the senior team in Leicester City. He was born in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A. 

If you are thinking about how he is richer than Messi and Ronaldo with his earning of 1000 dollars or so per week, then you should check his net-worth of 20 billion dollars. How did he acquire this net-worth when he has just played for only Leicester City professionally?

Well I have an answer for that. Faiq Bolkiah is the son of Jefri Bolkiah, prince of Brunei and nephew of Hassanal Bolkiah, the current Sultan of Brunei.

So how don’t you expect that the son of the prince and nephew of the Sultan of Bolkiah to have a net-worth of 20,000,000,000 dollars.

So now you know the richest footballer in the world and it is not Messi or Ronaldo.
