It will surprise you that Ronaldo, Messi and other top football players who had made names for themselves in football history are not in any way rated as the richest footballer in the world.
Before, I used to think its either Ronaldo nor Messi, not until I researched and find out that Leicester City attacking midfielder Faiq Bolkiah is the game richest player in the world, he belongs to the family of the Sultan of Brunei.
Faiq Jefri Bolkiah is a Bruneian international footballer who plays as a midfielder for the reserve side of Premier League club Leicester City and the Brunei national team. He serves as the captain of the national team.
