Next to Faiq Bolkiah, Neymar or Ronaldo are small players and have better watch out. This football enthusiast is the richest player in the world …
If the colossal salaries of Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar or even Lionel Messi, who is married to Antonela, are already putting stars in their eyes, it is nothing compared to that of Faiq Bolkiah. Although the 22-year-old is not yet known for his athletic prowess on the pitch, he could quickly become one. The nephew of the Sultan of Brunei, whose fortune is estimated at more than 18 billion euros, signed with a new football club this Wednesday, September 23.
After having proven himself in various British reserve teams, such as Newbury, Southampton (2009-2013), Chelsea (2014-2016) and Leicester (2016-2020), the one who dreams of becoming a professional footballer comes to join the Maritimo Funchal club. On the first division club’s Twitter account, Faiq Bolkiah expressed his joy at joining this new team: “It’s the best place to continue my international career”.
18 billion euros …
Heir to the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, also declared on arriving on the island of Madeira: “I am very happy to be here and to have made this decision. I’m sure this is the right club for me and for my career. My goals are to always give the best of myself in every training session and in every game“. Faiq Bolkiah surely dreams of the same career as Cristiano Ronaldo, originally from this autonomous region of Portugal. In any case, his pet, who is none other than a tiger, may not be able to follow him in this new adventure.
