Leave a comment | | August 2, 2017 10:03 AM

The International Journal of Computer Science in Sport (IJCSS) has labeled Lionel Messi as the world’s most overpaid player.

According to a new study on players wages, it has been revealed that the 5-time Ballon D’or winner may not worth his huge weekly payment.

Messi, 30, who recently agreed to a new contract with the Blaugrana, has come out on top of the list of overpaid stars, he might have been duly compensated with a salary package that makes him one of the richest men in sport, alongside Real Madrid rival Cristiano Ronaldo but IJCSS is contending his true value to be €320,000 lower than his actual weekly wage.

“For instance, a player such as Lionel Messi receives a weekly wage of €550,000 given that part of it is sponsorship, merchandise sales, image rights, and other incomes outside the scope of wins or performance on the field,” the report said.

“Using pattern recognition, Messi’s predicted salary computed based on the performance and wages of the current football players in the major football leagues would have been about 50% less.”
