EA kicks 200k GBP Rooney's way
Wayne Rooney, cover athlete for EA's FIFA football franchise, cashes nearly a quarter of a million pound annual haul from the company according to recently released court documents.
CVG lays out the details which has been revealed in litigation against the Manchester United striker. Rooney's former management company is suing the star for unpaid commissions alleged to be in excess of 4 million pounds.
200,000 GBP may seem like a lot of money (it is), but that's only a quarter of his club salary, an even lesser fraction of his sponsorship from Nike, and a pathetic third of his Coke endorsement deal.
See? Everyone is suffering in this tough economy.
