The full list of salaries is here (pdf), on the MLS players union web site. I got the link from Goff's blog. As he mentions, there are few players missing like Claudio Lopez, who would certainly be on this list.

Not after his performance last night. And plus, his name along is worth that much, even he stinks it up on the field.

Beckhams performance last night wasn't great, the Quakes played so badly that he couldn't help but look good.

Beckham is worth every single cent he makes; no other soccer player could get the kind of media attention he gets in this country.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:41 PM, April 08, 2008) : 

Why does Beckham get alot more money than everyone else and he isn't really that good compared to others anymore?!?!??!

I think it's hilarious how the Galaxy have the highest paid team, and are one of the worst in the MLS. They need to buy some defenders.

is this per month or what??

 

Blogger scaryice said ... (11:31 PM, January 05, 2009) : 

No, per year.

It was obvious that he was the most paid player. Also because he is a model and it can improve the team image and more women fans. But I think that he is over paid.
