Football is one of the world’s most lucrative industries. Top player can command ridiculously high salaries, and so do elite managers. Michael Owen was widely regarded as one of the most promising young players in the late 1990s and early 2000s. He was a prolific scorer for Liverpool, helping the Reds compete with the big guns in Europe. Owen won the Ballon d’Or Award back in 2001, thus being the last British player to have clinched the much coveted accolade. His playing career took a wrong turn when he joined Real Madrid, but money should make up for that. Owen has a net worth of $68 million.
