Football Players earn a lot of money on a weekly basis. This is why players like Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have been able to gather enormous wealth during their professional football career. However, some football fans think that coaches earn more money than players. This is not true because so many players earn money money than their coaches. Let us take a look at some of these players.
1. Cristiano Ronaldo
The Portuguese star is currently under the management of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United. Ronaldo earns about £480,000 on a weekly basis. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's current salary structure assures him a weekly salary of £200,000. This means that Cristiano Ronaldo earns more money than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Marina Granovskaia secured the signing of Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan during the European transfer window. Romelu Lukaku's annual salary at Stamford Bridge is about €7.5 million. However, Thomas Tuchel earns about £7 million at Stamford Bridge. The implication is that Romelu Lukaku earns more money than Thomas Tuchel.
3. Lionel Messi
The Argentine international is currently managed by Mauricio Pochettino. The PSG coach earns a weekly salary of about $156,000. However, Lionel Messi is paid about £620,000 on a weekly basis. He clearly earns more money than his current manager.
4. Raphael Varane
The French central defender moved to Old Trafford during the European transfer window. He has been managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since the beginning of the current season. He earns a weekly salary of about £340,000 at Manchester United. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer only earns £200,000 at Manchester United.
5. Jadon Sancho
The former Borussia Dortmund winger joined Man United for a transfer fee of £73 million. He is one of the highest paid players in the English Premier League. He earns a weekly salary of about £350,000 at Old Trafford. This means that he is paid more than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
