IT IS PRETTY disheartening to know that even a mediocre Premier League footballer can bank more cash for a crap performance on a wet night in Stoke than we can for slaving away for an entire year.

The Daily Mail have done a survey of most of the major football leagues in the world and estimate that the average Premier League salary is about €55,000 per week and €2.85 million a year.
