Premier League record breaker and history maker Arsene Wenger will no longer be in charge at Arsenal as from next season.
This follows the 68-year-old surprise decision to end his 22-year romance with Arsenal despite having one more year left in his running contract.
But life goes on for Wenger and with the money he has accrued from the round leather game, the Frenchman will certainly be living the good life even if he will be out of job.
This is because Arsene Wenger’s net worth is estimated to be £34.1 million (N17bn), according to Celebrity Net Worth.
What Wenger earned in his 22 years at Arsenal
According to Daily Mail, Arsene Wenger’s first salary when he first joined Arsenal was £500,000-a-year.
But after his earlier success at the club, Wenger’s salary increased drastically.
First his salary increased to £1.2 million-a-year in 1998, then to £2 million-a-year in 2001.
It went futher high to £2.5 million-a-year in 2004; £5 million-a-year in 2007; £6 million-a-year in 2010; £7.5 million-a-year in 2014.
Wenger was finally rewarded with £8 million a year in 2017 after he won his seventh FA cup title.
The data shows that Wenger is richer than the last three players who occupy the 11th, 12th and 13th position on the list of the 13 richest footballers in the world.
Net worth data from the Sunday Times rich list, Forbes, Goal.com and financial services site Gobankingrates.com. shows that David Silva who is 11th on the list and with a net worth £36 million, Cesc Fàbregas with a net worth £35 million and Luis Suárez with a net worth £31 million are not as rich as Wenger.
