Do Professional Footballers Get Paid Too Much

Extracts from this document...


Do Professional Footballers Get Paid Too Much? I think that question has been heard most probably by a lot of you im sure... The other day I saw on the news a club chief executive moaning about the wages the club pays to the players at the club, I can't remember who he was but it just annoyed me.
