    Default Arshavin's Wages

    Just heard something about this on 'Have i got news for you' of all things!

    Apparently he was expecting to be raking in 80k p/w, but he's getting taxed 50% so will make only make about 40k odd. So he's ended up making less than he was at Zenit, despite agreeing a much better wage. Shit one.

    So do all footballers get taxed so heavily? Obviously theyre still making criminal amounts of monola but in reality do they only see half of their reported wages after tax?

    Is it something to do with the fact he's non-EU?

    No it has something to do with the fact that he's a footballer, or so my dad says.

    Apparently because footballers earn such a ridiculous amount of money and so many of the public have started to complain about it, the government has introduced a 50% tax on all topflight footballers earning a certain amount. The way I understand it, it'll be applied to players like Ronaldo and Drogba who earn 100,000 + a week, and not Turner for Hull City who earns a fraction etc.
