NEW data reveals how many minutes each English league football player has to work for to afford some of the country’s most expensive cars.
For some, living the dream would be to own a Ferrari LaFerrari, priced at a mere £1.2 million.
But it’s clearly chicken feed to Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Tottenham Hotspur’s Heung-Min Son, who already own the car. Based on their annual salaries, they’d only need to be on the pitch for six hours, 18 minutes (Aubameyang) or nine hours (Son) to pay for the motors outright.
Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante earns his car in the shortest amount of time, with just 10 minutes and 15 seconds on the pitch to buy his Mini Cooper S.
Mercedes is the most popular car brand among footballers in the English football league, followed by Range Rover and Audi.
Online car maintenance service Fixter.co.uk researched and analysed the top players from this season based on their annual salary and position they play to compile a list of 200 footballers from all 20 teams.
Every possible lead and source was investigated to determine exactly which cars each player owns, including media clippings, player’s own social media accounts and fan websites.
