Dave Whelan — $210 Million
Dave Whelan’s soccer career ended a long long time ago. Today he’s almost 80-years-old, but he’s still known as one of the most famous players ever. Is it all because of his skills or his business sense? After the English born player left the field, he continued to amass a fortune after opening Whelan’s Discount Stores which is a series of supermarkets. He also purchased a store called JJB. It’s a sports store that also happens to be the second largest retailer in the United Kingdom. This has helped him become the third wealthiest soccer star of all time.
