Ricardo Kaka from AC Milan according to Futebol Finance 2007/2008. It is based on the salaries paid by the players' clubs, not endorsements.
I believe players do not receive salaries foe playing internationally - they only do when playing for their club. To play at international level is more like a privilege.
Football players get paid every week, the amount depends on the players' salaries.
New Zealand soccer players are paid high salaries, and receive more money than United States players because the sport is more popular there. Players in the United States make around $7 million, and those in New Zealand make slightly more than that.
Yes soccer players are paid very highly, it has gone over the roof .
40 to 30 million pro soccer players
Soccer players are paid vastly more at the professional levels than rugby players
Soccer players get paid in pounds in England , but in Europe they are paid in Euros.
Yes soccer players get paid more than basketball player. The reason for this is that Basketball is mostly funded by the US. Soccer is funded by many countries. So soccer is the higher paid sport.
