Football has been a gold mine around the world for decades now. It offers players the chance to live their dream on cloud nine, knowing they’ll be made for life afterwards. And if they’re lucky enough to play in the Premier League, then the financial perks can be tremendous.

The English top-flight is perhaps the most competitive league and has the biggest worldwide appeal. Just about every hardcore fan has watched a match at some point. Therefore, it’s made huge profits over the years in television, sponsorship, shirt deals and so on.

These handsome profits help the footballers bank in even more millions every year. They can also use their profiles to rank in more cash through their own sponsorships and on social media.

So, using figures collected by The Times,  we give you the 10 richest Premier League footballers in 2020.

10= Luke Shaw & Mohamed Salah – £19m

Luke Shaw & Mohamed Salah

Beginning the list of the richest Premier League footballers is a tie between Luke Shaw and Mohamed Salah. The pair have made a fortune of £19m (€21m).

Shaw earns the bulk of his salary at Manchester United, who awarded him a lucrative five-year contract in October 2018. It’s worth around £50m, comprising a £150,000-per-week salary.

Salah, meanwhile, makes a reported £90,000-per-week at Liverpool. While this is considerably less than Shaw, the Egyptian’s sponsorships make up the deficit. His partners include Vodafone, Falken Tires, Uber, and Adidas.

MTN hands over Iftar items to Old Kampala and Kibuli Muslim Headquarters

By Our Reporter 

MTN Uganda and the Muslim community have had a long standing relationship. Every year, the telecom stands with the Muslim community as they observe the holy month of Ramadan by offering food and alms to the muslim community through Salam foundation.

This year’s Ramadan was launched with an Iftar dinner between MTN, Salma Foundation and the Muslim community at Hotel Africana. Thereafter as has been the norm since 2017, MTN Uganda in partnership with Salam TV once again reached out to the Muslim community to handover food and alms to the muslim community members, specifically the covid-19 Frontline workers.

Some of the targeted groups include the Muslim members in the Uganda People’s Defense Forces, Uganda Police, Uganda Prisons Services, Orphanages, Teachers and Prisoners among others. The food items include sugar, rice, maize flour, wheat flour and cooking oil.

While receiving the food items at Kibuli Muslim Headquarters early this week, Sheikh Luwalira Lubowa, Secretary-General of the office of the supreme Mufti thanked MTN and Salam Foundation for continuously remembering the Muslim Community every year.

“We thank MTN for the services they have been extending to the country and we pray a blessing upon MTN and all their work in the country. This is the 4th time in a row that they are reaching out to us and we appreciate the gesture. Many people rely on the mosque for iftar meals at the end of the day and we are happy that MTN and Salam Foundation are reaching out,” Sheikh Luwalira said.

Hajji Latif Ssebagala who received the alms on behalf of Kisaasi College thanked MTN for giving back to the Muslim community. He urged other companies to emulate MTN by remembering the communities who support them.

So far, these food items have been distributed to The Old Kampala Muslim Headquarters, The Kibuli Muslim Headquarters, Muslim Teachers at Kisaasi college and Naguru Remand Home.

The MTN and Salam Foundation Team will also handover similar items to The Luzira Prison Services as well as the Luzira Prisons Training School.

MTN Uganda’s Ian Mugambe said that as the country regains momentum following the disruptive Covid-19 Pandemic, the telco has decided to reach out to the Covid-19 frontline workers this Ramadan as a way of honoring their selfless duty to the country during the pandemic.

“On behalf of MTN Uganda, this is our way of showing appreciation for the people who have been at the frontline against the deadly virus by reaching out to them during this fasting period,” Mugambe said.

Other beneficiaries of the Ramadan handover include the Kampala Imam’s Forum, The Muslim Teachers’ Association and medical workers, who will receive their alms this week.

Alongside the food and alms, MTN has also launched a promotional offer which will automatically give customers 30minutes of talk and 100MBs of data every night between 12am to 6am, when they load airtime or any bundle using MTN MoMo. This promotional offer will end with the holy month of Ramadan and is also open to all MTN customers.
