How I Wasted Billions In Cash I Made From Football – Alex Song

1 Mins read

Former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder, Alex Song, has revealed how he wasted billions in cash he made from football on expensive cars, trips, and dinners during his career at Emirates.

Former Cameroon and Arsenal midfielder, Alexander Song revealed that he only earned £15000 in his first year at Arsenal but failed to spend wisely.

Song, who spent eight years at Arsenal before joining Barcelona for £15million in 2012, said he only earned £15,000-per-week in his first year at the North London club, but failed to spend wisely.

The former Cameroon international also said that he struggled to save money in his account because he wanted to live like his former Gunners teammate, Thierry Henry, who was the club’s highest earner at the time.

“I spent eight years at Arsenal, but it was not until my last four that I can say that I started earning a very good living because my salary increased considerably.

“I wasted a lot of money, and I was going to expensive dinners, trips and holidays,” Song said in a live chat with his followers on Instagram video.

“During those eight years, I could not even keep £100,000 in my bank account. I thought I was a millionaire, but that was not the reality, I was making £15,000 per week.

“I came to training, saw Henry arrive in his car, I thought I needed the same no matter the cost because I was a footballer, went to the dealer, signed some papers and ended up with the same car as Henry. Still, I understood that my money was going to run out and I asked for a Toyota instead”.

He Also Added:

“Barcelona were interested in signing me, and their sporting director spoke to me, he told me that I was not going to play much football there. I told him that I don’t care. I knew that now I was going to be a billionaire.”
