Africa is a wonderful region, brimming with incredible talent throughout each field, which includes football. Several African players who play for top teams are well-compensated for their outstanding performance on the pitch.
West Africa had already developed the most star players, and maybe we can all accept that they have done a great job representing the region. Inside the continent, such a percentage translates to income growth.
However, according to Glusea.com, Samuel Eto'o is the wealthiest player in Africa with a personal fortune of $95 million. Eto'o, known worldwide to be one of the greatest finishers of all time, was a major member of a Barcelona team that included superstars such as Ronaldinho, Lionel Messi, and Thierry Henry.
He earned his reputation at the 2000 African Cup of Nations, netting four goals for Cameroon, as well as a game-winning strike in his country's gold-medal victory against Nigeria. Cameroon overcame Spain for the first Olympic gold in its history at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, continuing his incredible display.
Samuel Eto'o is an incredible player who is well-known for his achievements. He won the African footballer of the year award three times in a row, a record which has been maintained by him since he retired as a professional footballer.
