The Portuguese footballer has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Coentrão Burger” chain) in Lisbon, a Football Team (the “Vila do Conde Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondercoentrão - Portugal), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Fábio) and a fashion line called “Fábio Coentrão Seduction”.
