-The richest footballer in the world is Faiq Bolkiah.
-He plays for Leicester City.
-He is the nephew of the Sultan of Brunei.
When a lot of people think about the richest footballer in the world, the thoughts that would cross their minds would most likely be footballers like Neymar, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, but that is not the case.
Actually, the richest footballer in the world is none other than 19-year-old Faiq Bolkiah, who is the nephew of Hassanal Bolkiah, the Sultan of Brunei.
It should be noted that the teenager who is worth $20 billion is a talented Foxes winger who started his career at AFC Newbury as a youngster and has now been playing in England for some time.
Note that even though the young player has represented Brunei at international levels, he has not yet made a first team appearance.
It should be noted that in the 2013 Lion City Cup, he competed with the Gunners and was able to bag a goal in the competition.
After that, he was offered a 2-year deal by Chelsea which he signed, but after a year, he left to join Leicester city on a three-year contract.
Even though he was born in Los Angeles, the young footballer who appears to be an animal lover opted to play for Bruniei and he has scored once after representing his country nine times.
During a rare interview, the young winger who said his parents are in support of his profession revealed that he has played football from a young age and has always enjoyed going to the field and having the ball on his feet.
You can get an idea of his wealth when you take a good look at his father, Jefri, the brother of the Sultan of Brunei as according to reports, he splashed out roughly £10bn as head of the Brunei investment agency in 5 years.
In fact, at a point, he was spending the whooping sum of £35m monthly on wristwatches, cars and white gold pens.
He is believed to have as many as 2,300 cars which includes Rolls-Royces, Ferraris and Bentleys.
Another impressive thing about him is that during his 50th birthday, he flew the late pop king, Michael Jackson in for a private concert worth the sum of £12.5million.
