Reading captain Jobi McAnuff has stressed his opinion about players wages and that the money that is involved in football is getting out of hand, as reported by the Daily Mirror.
The former West Ham and Crystal Palace midfielder is enjoying Premier League life but is genuinely disheartened by the situation football has now found itself in.
“I can see why a Wayne Rooney should get a big bonus because of the amount of shirts he sells,” said McAnuff.
“But if you’re talking about £200,000-a-week, that’s ridiculous. Who needs that amount of money? Surely, someone will say ‘that’s enough’.
“We’re on the verge of getting out of control and we’re starting to lose a bit of reality.
“The most popular question I get from kids is ‘what car do you drive?’ What happened to them wanting to know what it was like to make your debut?
“Football is getting too expensive for fans and fans make football. Tickets for our game at Chelsea were £50 each. I know lots of people who couldn’t afford that.”
