Quoting this from 101GG

http://www.101greatgoals.com/blog/daniele-de-rossi-listed-as-serie-as-highest-paid-player-with-wage-dwarfed-by-premier-league-money-gazzetta/
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Gazzetta dello Sport have published a list of the highest paid players in Serie A this weekend.

In the context of the Premier League’s obscenely excessive wealth and continued hoovering up of Europe’s middle class talent, the list makes for very interesting reading.

Roma captain Daniele De Rossi is listed as Serie A’s highest paid player with an annual wage of €6.5m (after tax, while PL wages are listed as gross).

Gonzalo Higuain is ranked 2nd, with €5.5m annual wage, while Paul Pogba and Edin Dzeko are joint third on €4.5m annually.

Comparing these wages with those of the Premier League’s, we get a clear illustration of just the financial clout England now wields over Italy.

A player like Xherdan Shaqiri left Inter Milan for Stoke City this summer, and there’s no arguing that money was a factor.

The Swiss international earns around 60,000 pounds a week at Stoke, which works out at around €4.25m annually – just shy of Pogba and Dzeko’s wages.

So in other words, Stoke can match the salaries of Serie A’s top clubs.

Let alone the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool.


Also, this chart showing some youth academy stats

A couple of years back, FIFA started an investigation to see if Barça broke the rules with international transfers of youth players. Players under the age of 16 (EU) or 18 (non-EU) are basically not allowed to move to European clubs outside their country unless they move for reasons unrelated to football.
Finding out that Barça indeed did break some rules, they banned the players in question to play official matches for the youth teams at FC Barcelona.
These are the players: Theo Chendri (France), Paik (South-Korea), Jang (South-Korea) and Lee (South-Korea), Bobby Adekanye (the Netherlands, now at Liverpool), Takefusa Kubo (Japan, back to Tokyo FC), Kais Ruis (France, back to PSG), Patrice Sousia (Cameroon) and Ben Lederman (USA, going to Florida).
Most of the kids still stayed at the club for a while, knowing that they were still allowed to play friendlies and friendly tournaments happen often at youth level. After a while, FIFA also decided to ban these players from playing there as well.
A few months after that, the ban also hit the first team: Barça got the transfer ban, meaning that they wouldn't be allowed to sign players for 2 transfer windows. This ban expired after September.
Starting this week, FIFA decided that the kids weren't being punished enough and actually informed Barça that the kids can't train or even live at the club.
Patrice Sousia, who is from Cameroon and basically has nothing in Spain except for Barça, this meant that he had to move out of his house at La Masia (Barça's youth academy). Since he had nowhere to go, the parents of one of his ex-teammates (Alex Collado) offered him a place to stay.
This all is under the rulings of 'protecting the kids'.

Also I bet the soccer players despite being world famous aren't the ones that feel like the alphas. The NBA and NFL players are just so damn big and dwarf them laugh.gif


roll.gif okay.

Nah he's right, Messi isn't feeling like an alpha next to Mr. Watt

Yeah, you're probably right. He's only considered the greatest to ever grace the worlds most popular sport, while earning hundreds of thousands of Euros a week.

Dude has got to feel like a beta when he meets a larger athlete playing a sport that only one country plays.

You're totally right. Never thought of it that way....

But about when Messi met Kobe?

It was probably fanboy ism all around them

Not used to this. And of course they're sitting in first when the top two teams qualify. But this team is is far from contending next year. Typical 1-0 santos result is expected. . Everybody is trash except for Ronnie, Pepe, old man Ricky and Bernardo. Everything looked so much better when Bernardo has the ball at his feet.

To add to the random facts:

The dude is EVERYWHERE....

Hes been one of the most consistent players in the world since 2010,hope he eventually decides he wants a challenge elsewhere. I'd love to see him an Spain/England

roll.gif @ Casillas calling the club ungrateful in relation to VV. It should be the opposite after taking him in when he was close to retiring since no other club wanted anything to do with him. These Spaniards always love defending each other no matter context, I can see why Mou got tired of it quick laugh.gif. Casillas should know better given his experience with ungrateful clubs...
