Credit Crunch? Recession? Pah! Those words mean nothing to the guys that pay top player’s wages!

Always an interesting piece of discussion is who are the highest earning players in the world – a subject closely tied with football boots thanks to megabucks sponsorship deals – we knew as soon as the latest players ‘rich list’ hit our desks, we’d have to share it with you guys!

10. Samuel Eto’o (Internazionale, Cameroon) €13.8m/£12.3m.

Eto’o enters the chart as the highest-earning African player in the World.

Anyone who’s been watching Puma Football adverts recently know that the Inter marksman is a valuable asset for them, endorsing the v1.10 speed football boot and a central figure in all the company’s football based promotions, Puma likely pay top dollar to retain his services.

9. Frank Lampard (Chelsea, England) €14.2/£12.6m.

Frank ‘Super Goals’ Lampard also makes it into the top 10 for the first time.

After John Terry’s media circus, Lampard has become the sole marketable English face of Chelsea football club, and has seen new deals from the likes of EA sports (Appearing on the cover of FIFA 10) as well as increasing his value to Chelsea and adidas.

8. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Barcelona, Sweden) €14.5m/£12.9.

The big Swede with the Big ego has stolen a place in the top 10. Mostly thanks to his huge €9.5m yearly salary, the skillful marksman has been a model posterboy for Nike for a few seasons – wearing the Mercurial Vapor range.
