List: Top Ten Richest Football Players in Britain

Date: 2006

Source: Four Four Two magazine

Base: All professional football players resident in UK.

Notes: Two Dutchmen in the top-ten and one Irishman. We assume Wayne Rooney will soon make this list - if he can curb his gambling instincts... Four Four Two magazine also estimated that Chelsea's Jose Mourinho was worth £20m, making him the richest manager on the list. Beckham's weekly wage at Real Madrid was estimated £116,000 while Michael Owen is on an estimated £102,000-a-week deal at Newcastle United.
