  1. Ever since its inception, Football as a sport has come a long way and continues to grow. There was a time when scoring 30-40 goals in a single season was considered a Herculean task. But, today, in the ever-competitive era of the sport, footballers are amassing way more goals than their predecessors could've ever imagined. It is true that “a bag of money cannot score a goal”, but you definitely need one to keep the goal-scoring machines (read footballers) who do. Thus, there is no surprise to see football clubs around the globe breaking the bank to secure the services of such phenomenal players and, then, splurging a bit more to keep them happy. With many footballers raking in a lot of cash for their football skills, it's quite difficult to ascertain who earns more and stands supreme in wages. And, that's where the latest list of French publication L'Equipe comes to the rescue. Taking their monthly wages into consideration, the French outlet compiled the list of the top 10 highest-paid footballers in the world and the results are quite astounding. Take a look. 5) Luis Suarez (£2.5million) © Reuters The former Liverpool hitman is probably one of the most natural goal-scorers to have ever graced the game. Luis Suarez certainly reaches that 'third best player in the world' bracket (if there is one) with his natural goal-scoring instincts. Currently plying his trade with Barcelona, the Uruguayan has propelled the Spanish giants to a Champions League title, three La Liga honours and three Copa Del Reys. For a man who has become a vital cog in Barcelona's setup, Suarez bites off (pun intended) £2.5million (almost Rs 23.15 crore) from the Blaugrana's monthly-wage bill. 4) Neymar (£2.7million) © Reuters The Brazilian golden boy, in his early years, was one of the most sought-after talents in the world. It was his early rise that promoted Barcelona to shell out 16-million pounds (approx.) for his services. After a successful spell at Camp Nou, Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) came calling and paid a transfer fee of a staggering 195-million pounds, making him the most expensive player in the world with a salary of 2.7-million pounds per month (around Rs 25 crore). 3) Antoine Griezmann (£2.9million) © Reuters Antoine Griezmann was probably one of the unluckiest footballers in 2018 when it came to winning individual honours. Despite winning the World Cup with France and Europa League with Atletico Madrid, the Los Rojiblancos icon was overlooked for the 'Player of the Tournament' in Russia and Ballon d'Or, eventually losing out to midfield genius Luka Modric. The Frenchman might've missed out on the top honours last year, but when it comes to earning big bucks, the Atletico forward is doing alright. After signing a new deal with Atletico recently, Griezmann has occupied the No. 3 spot on the latest list of highest-paid footballers in the world, earning 2.9-million pounds (Rs 27 crore approx.) every month. 2) Cristiano Ronaldo (£4.1million) © Reuters Cristiano Ronaldo is a true icon of the beautiful game. Thus, there is no surprise to see the Portuguese phenom on the second spot (a place he hates the most) when it comes to earning big bucks. The talismanic forward, along with Lionel Messi, has been the most consistent player over the past decade. He scored an unbelievable 311 goals in 292 appearances, winning four Champions League titles during his time with Los Blancos in the Spanish capital. The Italian side, Juventus, came in calling (earlier this year) to secure the services of 34-year-old which surely added to his ever-increasing salary. According to the latest list, he is the second-best paid footballer in the world at a monthly salary of 4.1-million pounds (Rs 38 crore approx.). 1) Lionel Messi (£7.3million) © Reuters Just like the majority of the goal-scoring records, Lionel Messi also tops the list of highest-paid footballers in the world, earning a whopping 7.3-million pounds (Rs 65.5 crore approx.). It's quite surprising to notice that the Argentine bags almost the double of what his arch-nemesis Cristiano earns in a month. The five-time Ballon d'Or winner has been the force behind the amazing rise of Barcelona since 2004. Messi has powered the Blaugrana to the Champions League title on four occasions. And, in that span, he has gone on to score an unbelievable 404 goals in just 438 appearances. For a man who has continued to shatter one record after another and achieved almost everything there is in the sport over the decade, Messi's monthly wage, irrespective of the fact how ridiculous it already seems, appears a bit low. Considering how hard these men have worked in order to reach where they are today, it doesn't seem fair to calculate their talent in terms of the money they earn. But, that is what they do for a living. For these footballing demi-gods, the saying: "if you're good at something, never do it for free," fits perfectly.
  2. Earlier this year, Virgil van Dijk sent shockwaves across the footballing community by becoming the most expensive defender following his 75-million-pound move to Liverpool from Southampton. And, in his debut game for Liverpool, the Netherlands international scored the winning goal with a late header in his side's 2-1 win over Everton in the third round of the FA Cup. Since then, there has been no turning back for Van Dijk. Yet to complete a year at theAnfield, the Dutch superstar has not only justified his mega-bucks price tag with some sublime performances on the pitch, but he has also become one of the vital cogs for the Reds in defence. But, Van Dijk is much more than just a prolific defender. The 27-year-old is also a good human being - something that came to the fore recently. ð¦ | Wat een einde van het interlandjaar. Op naar 2019!#DUINED pic.twitter.com/SlHGD3fMoq — OnsOranje (@OnsOranje) November 20, 2018 Leading his national team against Germany, Van Dijk had his task cut out after Timo Werner and Leroy Sane put their team ahead in the UEFA Nations League clash. But, the Dutch rallied after Quincy Promes pulled a goal back with five minutes remaining and set up a nervous finale for Germany. In the final minute of the game, Van Dijk rose to the occasion, scoring through a fierce volley to secure a 2-2 draw for his side. If his exploits on the pitch allowed Netherlands to snatch a point and propelled them into the Nations League finals, Van Dijk's heartfelt gesture for one of the referees ahead of the game further earned him praise from all corners of the globe. Romanian referee Ovidiu Hategan had learnt about the passing of his mother right before the game, but he still carried out all his duties with diligence. Captain @VirgilvDijk; leading by example ððð pic.twitter.com/HrH2UhfeOk — OnsOranje (@OnsOranje) November 20, 2018 But, at the final whistle, the referee couldn't control his emotions and broke into tears. As Van Dijk shook his hand, he told the Dutchman about his loss and the duo exchanged a few words. "That man broke down, stood with tears in his eyes because he had just lost his mother. I wished him strength and said he had refereed well. It's a small thing, but I hope it helped him," Van Dijk said after the game. Soon, after the video of the incident was shared on the social media, football fans across the globe lauded the Netherlands captain and praised him for consoling the teary-eyed Romanian referee. Just read that the ref lost his mother not long before the match so VVD consoled him. Class, pure class. I agree with Marvin 100% ðð» I really hope Het Nederlands win the tournament — Neil Parkinson (@TheWiganParky) November 20, 2018 If ever there was a man made to be a captain its him!

  3. Being the most-watched sport across the globe, football undoubtedly translates into several benefits for the clubs and players. More viewership means more revenues from TV rights, sponsorships, and endorsements. With so much of money flowing in, clubs are able to match up to some crazy wages demanded by some of football's greatest superstars. Here's a look at the weekly wages of football superstars: 1. Graziano Pelle (290,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Move over Middle East! China has become the top destination for players looking to make a fortune. Following the footsteps of Hulk, Oscar, and Anelka, former Southampton striker Pelle joined Shandong Luneng. His desire to switch can definitely be attributed to the wages as opposed to improving his game or seeking bigger challenges. He reportedly earns about 15 million pounds every year. 2. Paul Pogba (300,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Manchester United had to literally empty every last bit of their pocket when they brought Paul Pogba from Juventus. His transfer figures of 89 million pounds created a furore across social media, with pundits and fans having the unrealistic expectation of him scoring in almost every game. Pogba's presence led United to a Europa League, and an EFL Cup. He reportedly draws 15.5 million pounds annually. 3. Kylian Mbappe (305,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Paul Pogba's compatriot earns slightly more than him. After all, PSG is becoming the economic powerhouse of football, and can match up to the crazy wages of superstars like Cavani, Neymar, and Mbappe. The 19-year-old striker has already drawn comparisons with Thierry Henry and if that's true, then his wages are fully justified. He earns 16 million pounds a year. 4. Hulk (325,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Hulk, true to his name, has created a pretty Herculean dent in the Chinese Football League. He joined Shanghai SIPG from Zenit St. Petersburg in Russia and has since then banged 34 goals in just 52 games. He's drawing wages of 17 million pounds a year but is now reportedly looking for bigger challenges, possibly in the English Premier League. 5. Cristiano Ronaldo (355,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Many would have expected either Ronaldo or Messi to top the list of the highest wage earners, but Ronaldo is not even in the top 3. If sources are to be believed, this goal machine's contract at Real Madrid gives him 18.5 million pounds a year. Ronaldo moved to Juventus earlier this week and has apparently taken a wage cut. 6. Ezequiel Lavezzi (385,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Argentine attacker Lavezzi plied his trade for big spenders PSG between 2012-16 before moving on to join Hebei China Fortune in the Chinese League. He failed to bag even a single goal during the 10 appearances that he made in the first season. However, Lavezzi redeemed himself with an astonishing 20 goals in 27 games in the very next season! For his services, Hebei China Fortune are paying him 20 million pounds. 7. Oscar (405,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Oscar created quite a storm when he left Premier League champions, Chelsea, to join Shanghai SIPG. He was at the peak of his career at 24 and given his performances for Chelsea and Brazil back then, he could have easily gone on to play for any big European club. His move cost him both his fans, as well as a place in the Brazilian national team. He was conspicuous by his absence at the 2018 World Cup. If we could assign a price to this, it is 21.5 million pounds! 8. Alexis Sanchez (450,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Alexis joined Manchester United from fellow league rivals Arsenal in the January transfer window in exchange for Armenian winger Mkhitaryan. He's a proven talent in the Premier League, scoring and assisting in double digits during the 2 seasons before this one. He earns about 450,000 pounds per week, which is about 23.5 million pounds a year. 9. Neymar (600,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Believe it or not, PSG are reported paying weekly wages of 600,000 pounds for Neymar's goals. And it seems like their monetary incentive is paying off. Neymar has scored 24 goals and provided 14 assists in just 23 games. He may not earn the Ballon d'Or this year but is earning 31.7-million-pounds a year. 10. Lionel Messi (770,000 Pounds A Week) © Reuters Arguably the greatest player on Earth, Lionel Messi earns 770,000 pounds per week. While his wage figures have often been criticized, one can never put a price to the invaluable dribbles, through balls, and moments of magic that he produces. The Barcelona talisman makes about £40.5 million annually.
  4. The word poverty conjures many images for us, all mostly depicting anguish, and hardships. Broken roofs, struggle for a square meal, and constant fights for a better life; that's why success stories appear much more meaningful when someone rises from the depths of despair, to make it big in life. We love a lot of footballers for their game, but when we read about the hardships they rose from, our respect for them grows even more. Here are the five superstars who grew up playing barefoot because they couldn't afford two meals a day, let alone football studs: 1. Alexis Sanchez © Reuters Alexis plays with a fire in his belly that defenders find hard to extinguish. Alexis grew up in the remote Chilean town of Tocopilla. As a kid, his swift footwork earned him the nickname Dilla (Ardilla means a squirrel in Chile). Alexis' father left the family before he was born, and even as a school-goer he had to work really hard to support his family. He washed cars, participated in street boxing bouts, and even performed acrobatics in front of the public to earn money, until he realized that football could be the answer to their poverty. 2. Zlatan Ibrahimovic © Reuters Just a week ago, during the England vs Sweden quarter-finals at the World Cup, Zlatan made a bet with his multi-millionaire friend David Beckham. If England would beat Sweden, he would buy him anything from Ikea. Today, Zlatan can afford to place such bets but his childhood was starkly contrasting. Born to an alcoholic father, he had a tough childhood that was spent in a ghetto in Rosengard. He admits that he frequently stole money as a child, but that very ghetto became the place where he learned the tricks that he is so famous for today. 3. Angel Di Maria © Reuters From being transferred in exchange for 35 footballs by his boyhood club, to the 65 million pounds that Man United paid for him in 2014, Di Maria has come a long way. He was born to a coal-mine worker and shared a small room with his 2 siblings. His father was a gifted footballer too, but could never pursue a career due to a knee injury. Di Maria started playing barefoot in the streets because his father didn't make enough to afford boots, a fact that saddened his father a lot. His poor childhood has made him a calm and composed person, unlike many other party-animal footballers. 4. Luis Suarez © Reuters One of the most prolific strikers of this decade, Suarez endured both a poor and a rough childhood. He grew up in the nasty neighbourhoods of Montevideo. Despite the crime around, he managed to sustain his love for football and played barefoot every single day. Suarez's surroundings made him emotionally vulnerable, a sign that he still displays at times. But an encounter with Sofia Balbi, his now wife, made him much more focused towards the game. 5. Cristiano Ronaldo © Reuters Arguably one of the best players of all times, Cristiano Ronaldo's childhood is what has made him so tough, determined, and destined for greatness. His family was so poor that he was almost aborted by his mother, a fact she confessed in her biography. As a child, he lived in a congested room that he shared with his mother and two sisters. Self-respect was and is still one of the hallmarks of this great, and it is what cost him a place in his school. He threw a chair at a teacher who insulted him. Following the rustication, he had to work to earn money at the age of 14, but a call from Sporting Lisbon changed his life. Today, he's worth $400 million.

  6. Football. Futbol. Voetbal. Futebol. Fußball. Fotboll. Calcio. No matter what you call it, no other sport comes close to matching the worldwide passion for the beautiful game. Not even cricket. Football is a global game. And the World Cup is the biggest and most-watched sporting event in the world. For all the right reasons too! Not only does football have the most popular players, but also the most stylish athletes. Known for their extreme games and edgy personalities, these players carry out new trends with an air of pride. Except for an occasional stubble, these players have generally been seen sporting a squeaky-clean or a well-groomed look. Seems like #BreakTheBeard has gone international. And clearly, it has worked in favour of these players. Unlike those who chose to keep heavy beards... (ahem ahem, Messi). 1. MensXP Cristiano Ronaldo is the greatest player of all time! And fans were quick to notice a change in his usual facial hairstyle when he was spotted with a goatee. Maybe this is him subtly trying to acknowledge being the GOAT (both puns intended). And Bollywood took no time to notice this. After all, the Indian king of fashion, Ranveer Singh spoke about the new development too! He grew A #GOAT (EE) ?!?! REALLY ??!! ð WHAT . A . GUY ð¤¦ð½‍âï¸ ð @Cristiano #URUPOR — Ranveer Singh (@RanveerOfficial) June 30, 2018 2. MensXP If there's one thing that the French heartthrob, Antoine Griezmann has kept as consistent as his excellent performance on the field, it's his choice of keeping his face prim and proper. While he has switched his hairstyle a lot- remember his long blond tresses?- he has always kept his face clean-shaven. 3. MensXP The Croatian centre-back, Dejan Lovern made his debut for Croatia's national team in 2009. He switches between a clean-shaven look and a well-stylised French beard every now and then, and we have no complaints. 4. MensXP Clean heart and cleaner face. Paul Pogba dedicated France's semi-final win against Belgium to the 12 boys who survived a harrowing ordeal trapped underground in Thailand. The goodhearted switches between a goatee and a slick look. 5. MensXP He is one of the best players in Croatia's football history, and he is a die-hard advocate of a clean-shaven face. While he might not have spoken about it outright, he has kept his face spotless since he started playing in 2005. It's pretty clear that a full beard is simply passé, and #BreakingTheBeard is the way forward. Remember how Indian cricketers also opted for cleaner looks in IPL this year? So guys, what's your favourite beard style? Let us know in the comments section!
