The 10 Richest Soccer Players of All-Time


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.

Tiffany Raiford is a lifelong Floridian, wife to my high school sweetheart and mother of four littles (two girls and boy/girl twins...no, they are not identical and yes, I'm sure). My kids love to whine, so I love to wine. My loves include nap time, bed time, date night, travel and evenings and weekends when my husband is home because he handles all diaper changes.
