Some players have learned to invest the money they earn throughout their career and manage to maintain their wealth throughout their lives, but many others have gone from being millionaires to being bankrupt, because they never learned to properly manage their finances and after retiring from football they have been left without income.


Such is the case of one of the most important players of Manchester United's last golden era, Wes Brown, who was an indispensable player for Sir Alex Ferguson and managed to win multiple titles with the Red Devils, including the Champions League and the Premier League, which won him the hearts of the fans at Old Trafford.

In his best period with Manchester United, a time when he was a teammate of Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand, Wes Brown reached a salary of 250,000 euros per month, being one of the highest paid players at the club, and became a millionaire's fortune. However, after divorcing his former wife, he was left bankrupt and without a place to live.

That is why several Manchester United players tried to support him in some way, but the one who really helped him was Marcus Rashford, who offered him one of his houses so he could live there, charging him a much lower amount than what the rent would really be worth. The amount was not disclosed to the press, but Rashford's action has been applauded by some United fans.


Wes Brown's time at Manchester United

Wes Brown played as a central defender for Manchester United from 1996 to 2011. During that time he won a total of 16 titles, including 2 Champions League and 7 Premier League titles. He was also one of the most important players for Sir Alex Ferguson at that time.
