David Ginola tops annual list of highest-paid footballers

In 2020 it looked like the footballer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Tuesday (March 21) that Ginola is the highest-paid footballer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between February 2022 and February 2023, a nearly $20 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The French footballer has an estimated net worth of $145 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Ginola Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Gassin Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderginola - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from David) and a fashion line called “David Ginola Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many David fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
