Fowler Picking Up Wages

Fowler Picking Up Wages

Robbie Fowler is one of the richest men in football, owning almost 100 properties and having assets that could buy an African country. And the shock transfer of the January window has to be his move back to Anfield from Manchester City.

Yet the player the Scousers call 'God', is still getting a wage off Leeds United!

Fowler had a 14-month spell at Elland Road which ended early in 2003 when Leeds looked to cash in on a saleable asset as they plunged into a financial crisis.

However as part of the agreement which took him to Manchester City, Leeds agreed to keep paying Fowler a proportion of his wages, to make up for the shortfall which came with moving to Eastlands.

Leeds chief operating officer Shaun Harvey told the Yorkshire Post that agreement would stand until the summer, the time Fowler's contract at Leeds was originally due to expire.

Harvey: 'Our agreement is with Robbie Fowler and as such there will be no change.

'Leeds are not going to be relieved of any financial burden, the deal was agreed that Leeds would continue to pay Robbie Fowler until the middle of 2006 and that deal stands no matter where he plays.'
