Football Sports Star Get Rich Quick By Investing Online
For some, Wall Street is the perfect fit. It’s cut-throat, super competitive and it takes a lot of discipline to put in all those long hours.
So it should come as no surprise that there are a bunch of former football stars working in trading, investment banking and wealth management.
We’ve compiled a list of some of the best football players in finance. (Note: These names are not in any particular order).
Many of these guys played professionally before heading to Wall Street. Others were standouts in college. Some have even done internships at investment banks during the off-season while still playing in the NFL.
If we’re missing any big names, feel free to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to add to the list. A photo would also be greatly appreciated.
The 33-year-old forward, one of the world’s best and highest-paid players, denied the allegations through his representatives, according to Reuters.

In 2016, Argentine star Lionel Messi — who plays for Real Madrid rival Barcelona — and his father were found guilty of similar tax-fraud charges in Spain, each of them receiving 21-month prison sentences that were not served because of the country’s first-time offender system. The court found Messi had funneled income earned from his image rights through countries such as Uruguay, Switzerland and Belize, evading more than 4 million euros (about $4.6 million) in taxes from 2007 to 2009. Messi paid 5 million euros (about $5.6 million) in back taxes in 2013, and he and his father were fined 2 million euros (about $2.2 million) and 1.5 million euros (about $1.7 million) after their guilty verdicts.
