The players who will represent the selection of Spain in the finals of the World Cup already know the value of the prize if they become champions in Russia.
According to the newspaper Marca that each of the summoned Julen Lopetegui will take home 400 thousand euros, after deducting the due taxes – the gross amount is 800 thousand euros.
In the 2014 World Cup, in Brazil, the prizes were of 720 thousand euros, before taxes. Four years earlier, in South Africa, they settled on 600,000.
The phrase belongs to agent Fernando Felicevich, representative of several world football stars, such as Alexis Sánchez (Manchester United) or Arturo Vidal (Bayern Munich). Asked about the problems that Alexis had with the tax authorities during his time in Catalonia, when he was in the service of Barcelona, the businessman criticized the city of Barcelona.
“Barcelona is the best city in the world and would be perfect if it were in another country,” said Felicevich quoted by Sport, while still criticizing the work of journalists:
“The biggest enemies of an agent are the bad journalists and the corrupt leaders. I have many friends in the world of football and none of them are journalists. Companions, colleagues, footballers, former footballers, coaches, leaders … no journalists.
