Wanyama set to earn Sh1 million-a-day salary


Footballer will earn Sh35m monthly as he makes record move to Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur.


Victor Mugubi Wanyama’s impending Sh1.6 billion move to English Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur from Southampton, which is expected to be completed any time, marks yet another big score for a Kenyan footballer.

The Harambee Stars captain will most certainly enjoy an improved pay package at the North London outfit with his take-home salary set to rise from the current Sh11 million monthly — which he earned at St Mary’s — to Sh35 million gross and Sh20 million net at White Hart Lane.

Southampton will, however, have the lion’s share of the projected Sh1.6 billion — claiming up to 80 per cent, which translates to around Sh1.2 billion — with the balance going to the player’s agents and his former club Celtic.

Besides the big money involved, Wanyama will make history as the first East African to play for a Champions League club in England and the first Kenyan to do so with two clubs.
