Report by T Ximba

Playing professional soccer is undoubtedly one of the ways in which a person can earn millions but contrary to popular belief that not all soccer players remain wealthy after retirement. There are many things that can go horribly wrong.

Apart from that football is not a sustainable career as the career mostly depends on age as well as other factors. The career is mostly influenced by the competition as well, as there are always new players with calmer legs.

The money comes in faster and it can go away faster. Players tend to forget about making wise decisions with money. That goes to managing it. Players tend to forget about the real value of money and start to spend more than they possibly should.

Likewise, most of the players tend to forget about their future and the inevitable happens when the playing days are over they rely on the money saved during their career.

The bad spending habits have made some of the well-known players from riches to rags. This is the top 10 of players who have gone broke.
