Introduction

'Do Footballers get paid too much for what they do?' Hello, today I am going to be giving you a speech on the topic 'Do footballers get paid to much for what they do?' Premiership footballers, 17-18 year olds earn the average of �24,000 a week and for 27 - 28 year olds it is up to 899,500 a week!

And when a footballer goes out and trashes a brand new 500 thousand pound Lamborghini and doesn't care just buys a new one with out looking back. That is my view on 'Do footballers get paid too much for what they do.' ...read more.
