Football they say is the easiest, legal way out of poverty and this is because it is one of the best-paying jobs in the world where one does not need a certificate to get into it.

Black Stars deputy captain, Thomas Partey, is the second-highest paid player at Arsenal with a weekly salary of £200,000 making you wonder if there is any corporate worker in Ghana who makes that much.

However, it is not only Thomas Partey who is making a fortune in football as other Ghanaian players are equally making good money in the game while others like Asamoah Gyan have made it big in the past.

Jordan Ayew, Kwadwo Asamoah, Daniel Amartey, Andre Dede Ayew, Jeffrey Schlupp, and Christian Atsu are among the top highest-paid Ghanaian footballers in the world.
