Really Gandalf, what he earns has nothing to do with it. It will be much less than you quoted anyway.
He is an extremely talented young footballer whose career is now threatened by a horrendous injury, at no fault of his own, and in my opinion there was no intent to injure when the tackle was made - something like this can happen anytime in a match.
I too hope he can make a full recovery from this and continue his career.
christ alive Gandalf you really are special aren't you? The next time one of your limbs gets shattered I'll be sure to make a snarky, envious and utterly irrelevant comment about your salary/eyes raise
Indeed I must be rather special but I prefer to call it realistic. He is in a better position than most of the country to be financially secure after the accident. I notice that when workers in industry, who work much harder for much less, than our pampered, overpaid, and fawningly supported/revered footballers, are injured badly there is not a rash of the forum users sending them their undying sympathy. Hate to be cynical but it is easy at times. Agreed, it must be difficult for him but he will not have to worry about money.
If G wants to be cynical thats his own descision, but do feel for the guy. Not all footballers are money grabbing merc's. This guys career as a footballer is most likely over, and if its not he will not be the talent he was, also he will probably miss out on representing his country in Europeon Cup.
Unfortunatly football is a sport which this kind of thing can happen. The only surprise to me is that these kind of horrific injuries arent more comman place, especially in the EPL where the game is played at the highest tempo. Taylor (who caused the injury) misstimed his tackle by maybe only a few seconds and Im sure he is feeling awful.
