It's that time of the year when for the first time of the season, MLS fans/media/pundits/followers/haters and more have access to the players salaries of every player in every club. Shock, awe, good/bad surprises are upon the interwebs to evaluate, understand, analyze and ingest meta-data.
The Montreal Impact player's salary list
The combined guaranteed compensation of Didier Drogba, Ignacio Piatti and Laurent Ciman = 3,253,333.67 US $. This represents 48% of the total guaranteed compensation of the whole club.
Lucas Ontivero is a young DP and Galatasaray is paying half of his salary as per the loan deal. Is the salary displayed before the 50% or after 50% rebate?
- Experience and longevity in MLS pays as shown by Dominic Oduro, Eric Alexander and Eric Kronberg.
- Value for Money: With Victor Cabrera making a good salary of 250,000 US $. Is the gap in talent and performance output between the Argentinean defender and Wandrille Lefevre as big as the 187,000 US $ gap in compensation ?
