Africa: Soccer’s Most Expensive Legs

| January 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

Today, is looking at some of the most expensive legs which will be running on the green pitches at the Afcon 2013 tournament in South Africa which begins this Saturday – 19th January, 2013.

Some of the players make as much as the entire price money of $2 million the winner of this year’s tournament will take home in just one month.

At the last nations Cup in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea, Ivory Coast’s Yaya Toure returned to his club in England to bag a cool 1million pounds without kicking any ball for Manchester City after a month’s stay with his national team.

He’s paid £250,000 a week.

Certainly, his legs are quite an asset and obviously, his English club will be praying he returns without any injuries although those legs are insured with several thousands of pounds.

Ghana’s own Asamoah Gyan is certainly a millionaire by any standards now.

With his new move to Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates, his legs earn him $16 million a year without any tax deductions.

Asamoah Gyan earns a million dollar more than Yaya Toure’s brother, Kolo Toure which is a good reason to scorn his critics who were unhappy with his move.

Didier Drogba is still quite an asset even though he plays in China. He earns 12 million Euros.

Mali’s Seydou Keita also earns the same 12 million also playing in China.

Togo’s Emmanuel Adebayor on annual basis bags around $13 million playing for Tottenham Hotspur.

Nigeria and Chelsea midfielder Mikel Obi manages a modest 4.5 million Euros.

You see how much you legs can earn you if you use them well but nevertheless let’s see what these expensive legs make out in this year 2013 Afcon.
