As time has passed, money has become a bigger and more important part of football. Football has become more than just a sport; it has become a lifestyle, and as a result money has been pumped in to football from all four corners of the world. You only need to look back over the last five years to see how much of an effect money has had on football; Ronaldo & Bale's mega-money moves to Real Madrid, Manchester City's infamous rise to glory, and of course the ridiculous six-figure wages taken home by the footballing idols we adore.
However, whether we like it or not, you need to be able to have a good control over your finances in order to succeed in football. It is the clubs with the big cheque-books who can sign the big-name players, and it is the club who have plenty in the bank who can improve their facilities. Money is needed to move forward in football. It is all well and good to talk the talk, but how do you actually improve your club's finances?
This guide will teach you how you can save money, how you can earn money, and how you can spend it wisely.
