As a football society we’ve started becoming obsessed with just how much transfers cost and how much players earn on the back of those transfers. Now it seems we’re interested in what our presenters earn.
Football is big business, tell us something we don’t know right! Last year Watford were the lowest spenders on wages in the Premier League, giving their players ‘just’ £58 million with Manchester United at the other end splashing out £232 million.
Henry is reportedly on £4 million a year whilst Neville takes home £1.2 million, or at least that was the reported case back when the Frenchman first signed on.
Now the BBC’s wages have been revealed today with the disparity between men and women’s pay the big talking point. In the footballing sphere though the big news was Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer being in the top 10.
BBC breakfast host Dan Walker came under criticism for being on £100k more than his co-host Louise Minchin but the Football Focus host revealed that it’s because of his extra Saturday morning duties.
Sure BBC presenters get paid a lot but it’s not that much compared to people working in their industry!
