Members of the public are set to have a whip round to supplement the poor Premier League footballers who turn down big money moves to super rich leagues, it has emerged.
Manchester City fan, Joe Write, 27 said: “I think it’s incredible when you see players turning down big money moves abroad and remaining on their measly 5 figure weekly salaries. That’s basically an intern wage.
“I mean it just goes to show that these guys really are in it for the love of game. It’s only fair us fans put our hands in our pockets and give them some more money as a gesture of gratitude.”
Arsenal fan Bryan Lythe added: “Respect to these players for showing loyalty to the clubs. Turning down these big moves abroad to remain in lifestyles that most people dream of warrants the highest acclaim. They’re like modern day Mother Theresas!”
