Have you heard about Dario Conca ?? The player earns more than Messi and Ronaldo.
It is hard to believe there are players who earn more than the two most celebrated footballers in the planet. Although Eto, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and a few others are getting paid more than these two, they are known to everyone as they have played their trade in top flight European football. But to earn more than these players without playing for any European giants is a remarkable achievement.
Dario Conca insights:
Born in Argentina, the attacking midfielder started his career at Tigre and River Plate as an Youth International. After making his debut at the age of 15 for Tigre, Conca joined River Plate. In 2006 River Plate loaned him out to Rosario Central where after some impressive displays, Vasco da Gama showed interest in the player and signed him as a loanee. Conca finally found a permanent club when he moved to Fluminense, where he stayed for 2 seasons and scored 17 goals in 81 appearances before finally joining Guangzhou Evergrande.
No doubt, the Brazilian media also pinned the nickname “El Crack Ignorado” (The Forgotten Superstar). Dorio Conca is an under rated player throughout his career. Guangzhou Evergrande, the big spending Chinese club has splashed the cash on Conca hoping for the best in him. Maybe the one reason Conca has not been under the media is the fact that the player has not been selected for the national team.
