So MLS released its annual “our lives are better than yours” player salary figures. And with David Beckham finally off the books, we have a new reigning king in the penthouse. It’s Thierry Henry. The Frenchman pulls in a whopping $4.35 million a year, narrowly topping Robbie Keane’s $4.33 mill.
As you pore over the list below, you’ll find the true winner in all of this: Landon Donovan. Because, while the rest of the guys were busting it down the line to sustain their lavish lifestyles, Donovan got paid the majority of his $2.5 mill just to hang out. Best job in the league.
3. Tim Cahill, $3.5 million
4. Landon Donovan, $2.5 million
5. Marco DiVaio, $1. 9 million
6. Obafemi Martins, $1.725 million
7. Danny Koevermans, $1.66 million
8. Kenny Miller, $1.13 million
9. Fredy Montero, $856,000
10. David Ferreira, $730,000
