Written by Esme and Annabelle

Football is a world renown sport, which used to be known as:

‘ The Beautiful Game’

However, the average player’s salary is currently increasing at an alarming rate. Is it right that Neymar transferred from Barcelona to PSG for 198 million pounds, whilst nurses starting their career can earn as little as 15,404 pounds a year?


Even though, the top footballers can attract many fans, they are paid millions to play a sport.

The players get more money than the groundsman and trainers, which are some of the many vital people whose job make this sport possible.
