Midfielder “Zenith” Alexei Sutormin called the high salaries of players justified
Zenit midfielder Alexei Sutormin compared the salaries of football players and teachers. His words are quoted by the SGB Show YouTube channel.
“It is clear that the players get more, unfortunately. I mean that teachers and others, God forbid, start getting more, ”said the athlete.
At the same time, Sutormin called high salaries in football justified. “Perhaps some do not see the other side of the coin. I didn’t have a single graduation, it’s good if birthdays fall on a weekend, ”he explained. The midfielder added that the income of football players is most often judged by contracts in the clubs of the Russian Premier League, but the players of the First and Second Leagues earn much less.
Earlier, the former striker of Zenit Alexei Gasilin urged not to criticize the players for their high incomes, noting that few of the millions of athletes make good money. “Being a professional footballer is hard work. You spend your entire childhood not knowing if you can make it or not. Football players take risks, donate, so everyone’s salaries are justified, ”he said.
