Toni Schumacher tops annual list of highest-paid footballers
In 2017 it looked like the footballer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (December 14) that Schumacher is the highest-paid footballer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between November 2018 and November 2019, a nearly $40 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 German footballer has an estimated net worth of $215 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 Schumacher Burger” chain) in Berlin, a Football Team (the “Düren Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderschumacher - Germany), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Toni) and a fashion line called “Toni Schumacher Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Toni fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
