The Richest Footballers in the Premier League [GIF]

richest epl footballers The Richest Footballers in the Premier League [GIF]

The Sunday Times newspaper will publish their list of the richest Premier League players tomorrow, but here’s a sneak peek.

Manchester United playmaker Wayne Rooney tops the list with an estimated wealth of £45 million in the year 2012. He’s joined in the top 10 by fellow United teammates Rio Ferdinand and Ryan Giggs.

Surprisingly, Michael Owen is third on the list, which just goes to show how much of a disappointment he’s been for Stoke City and how the club could have achieved more if they had signed someone who wasn’t on the knacker’s yard.

A few other surprises on the list include Fulham’s Damien Duff (what has he done lately?), Ji-Sung Park (who has been such a disappointment at QPR) and Joe Cole (who has been improving, but shouldn’t be in the top 10).

H/T 101 Great Goals.
