Portuguese Side Maritimo Sign Richest Player In The World

Portuguese Side Maritimo Sign Richest Player In The World

The so called 'richest footballer in the world,' Faiq Bolkiah has moved to Portugal to sign for Maritimo, having previously been on the books at Leicester City.

Faiq is known by the moniker as richest player in the world due to his father Jefri Bolkiah, who is the Prince of Brunei and brother of the Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah.

The family fortune is reported to stand at around $28 billion, as of October 2019, which means that Faiq's family is richer than most club owners as well.

Faiq is 22-years-old and had previously played in England and signed for Leicester in 2016. He has now signed for Maritimo in the Primieria Liga, having never actually played for the Foxes.

On signing for the Funchal based side, the winger said, "This is the best place to continue my football career."

The former Leicester player was born in Los Angeles but moved to England for his education and first signed as an academy player at Southampton in 2009.

A Vanity Fair article in 2011 claimed the player's father, whose full name is His Royal Highness Pengiran Digadong Sahibul Mal Pengiran Muda Jefri Bolkiah ibni Al-Marhum Sultan Haji Omar Ali Saifuddien Sa'adul Khairi Waddien, 'has probably gone through more cash than any other human being on earth,' and described him as a 'notorious playboy.'

The same article says the 65-year-old celebrated his 50th birthday with celebrations that included a concert from Michael Jackson that cost him $17 million.

He also had a private concert by Whitney Houston in which he reportedly handed the singer a blank cheque and told her to pay herself what she thought it was worth and cost him $7 million.

Maritimo have only played one game so far this season, which they lost, they play Tondela next at home this weekend before facing Porto the following week.

At least if they get in a situation where they can't buy a win their new signing can afford it...
