Salary Debate of Professional Football Players
Are football professionals overpaid? This is the question people seem
to be asking their selves quite often. You see articles about this in
the Papers, and hear about it on the news and radios very often.
Headlines take over the sports page, when footballers are offered new
contracts and new deals. 'David Beckham wants a new £80,000 a week
David Beckham who already is a millionaire, wanted even more money to
add to his bank account. David and his wife Victoria, who is a

As the world moves on and on, money in everything seems to be
increasing. Football is a great example of this, and I have noticed
this trend over the years. Every few years the prices of players, and
the money they are earning seems to increase quite rapidly. The
question is when will it stop.
I have my own opinion on this view. I believe that their are some
players in the football world who are well overpaid. But I also think
that if you want to be the best you are going to have to pay high
prices for quality players.
The value of players has increased dramatically over the past 10
years. 10 years ago good players would only be valued between £1-£5
