1) Samuel Eto’o – Net Worth: $110 Million
It’s no surprise that the man to have won a record four African Player of the Year trophies tops the list for the continent’s richest player. Eto’o was in fact once the highest paid player in the world during his spell with Anzhi Makhachkala bringing in $25millon a year. Goal.com put his net worth at $118 million (£70m), but given his extravagant lifestyle and his donations to several charity organizations we put the net worth at $90 million. Turkish professional football club, Antalyaspor has secured his signature.
