Jailed £5K A Week Footballer Financially Struggling

Recommended Posts

Madine was ordered to pay £1,500 in compensation to Mr Beresford and £4,200 in court costs. Ms Dorrell said she believed this would be difficult for the defendant as he had not been paid by the club since he was convicted last month.

She said although he had been earning £5,000 a week he was struggling to pay a mortgage on the house where his family lived.

Judge Jameson said he would vary the compensation and costs if evidence could be provided that proved the defendant was in a difficult financial position.

He said he was conscious of the position of the footballer's family but said: "Much of the £5,000 a week went on high living."

This part of the story struck me, someone earning £5k a week and struggling to pay mortgage!

Amazing how people who have money actually don't have any as they've spent it all.

Obnoxious little sod, Madine. Glad he left Carlisle even though he was decent enough on the pitch. He got in trouble whilst he was there for punching a fan.

[His defence counsel] 'said although he had been earning £5,000 a week he was struggling to pay a mortgage on the house where his family lived.

WTF!!

As a massive football fan I simply never ceased to be amazed that these guys not only fail to live within their considerable means, but bizarrely choose to put expenditure on the never never, and quite often fail to plan for life after 30 (maybe 34-38 if you are exceptional).

McMortages for (the most garrish) McMansions no doubt - when they could settle down, screw the nut for 24 months, and then buy outright. THEN play the high life once you sort yourself out.
