It’s no secret that the footballers of today earn astronomical sums of money.
To the everyday man or woman in the street, the top players have weekly salaries that are well in excess of what they would earn in an entire year.
It’s perhaps with that in mind that Forbes appeared to place Barcelona star, Martin Braithwaite, in the billionaire class, thus making him one of the world’s richest individuals.
The Danish striker took to Twitter with his uncle, Phillip Michael, with whom he has multiple business interests, to refute those claims.
I see @Forbes wants to put me on a list. You guys are a couple of years too soon! ?
That said, if you’re interested in the details, we’ll be diving into that side of my life in my @433 documentary.
