London, Sep 24(ANI): Manchester United captain Gary Neville has said that every Premier League player deserve the monstrous amount that they are paid, as they are the ones through which billions are earned.
Neville is among many top earners, who rake in more than 100,000 pounds a week.
"Others earn billions selling rights and 75,000 come to watch us every week. There's a product there that people love. Fans are crucial, but without the player you have nothing," The Sun quoted Neville, as saying.
Neville further quashed critics and many fans, who question a player's loyalty when they quit a club for more cash. He reckons that top-flight stars have the right to try to earn as much as they can during careers.
"Architects leave their business, caterers move restaurants - this is life. People want a better wage. Is there too much money in other businesses, like banking?" Neville said. (ANI)
