Average Premier League footballer has to work less than five days to earn typical UK annual salary

Mirror Online Sports 3 weeks ago

Most Premier League footballers can match the average full-time worker's annual salary in five days, according to new data.

Latest UK figures, which have been revealed by spotrac.com, show that the average worker pockets £584.90 a week which adds up to £30,415 a year before tax.

That means the average Premier League star needs just under five days to earn the same salary.

Manchester City pay their players, including the likes of Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne on average, £115,000 per week, which is a league high.

In contrast, Sheffield United's players - such as captain John Egan, midfield star John Lundstram and boyhood fan striker Billy Sharp - take home just £9,000 per week on average.

Liverpool kicked off the top flight campaign against Norwich at 8pm on August 9 meaning that the average top flight star would've matched the average full-time employee's salary by 1:32pm on August 14.

To put it into perspective N'Golo Kante's Mini Cooper S, which is valued at £23,395, would've taken him just 10 minutes and 15 seconds to buy outright based on his weekly salary.

Tottenham new boy Tanguy Ndombele joined from Lyon in the summer and was able to afford his Volkswagen Touareg in just 16 minutes.

The north London pair of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Son Heung-min boast the most expensive cars in the Premier League - a Ferrari LaFerraris.

The Italian car is valued at £1.15m and it will have taken the Arsenal man six hours and 18 minutes of playing time to pocked the funds.

Son's wages, which don't quite match Aubameyang's, mean his Ferrari will have taken him a little over nine hours to afford.

Liverpool star Roberto Firmino, who drives a Rolls Royce Phantom, will have needed two hours and 11 minutes on the pitch to stump up the £360,000 required to buy his car.

The Reds are second to City as the team with the highest average weekly wage on £100,000.

Chelsea , Manchester United and Arsenal all pay their plays north of £90,000 with Leicester , who currently occupy second place, paying an average wage of £50,000.
