John Mikel Obi’s Amstel Malta pay
John Mikel Obi may be making a lot of money with Chelsea with his £75,000 weekly salary, but he allegedly made even more with his deal with Amstel Malta.
Mikel Obi was unveiled as an Amstel Malta ambassador alongside Geneveive Nnaji in March of 2014, and according to AfricanFootball.com, made a whooping $4 million from the deal.
“Mikel hit it rich with the Amstel Malta advert as he will pocket about 800 million Naira over a number of years,” the website reports.
“Nollywood actress Genevieve Nnaji, who also did another Amstel commercial, will pocket about half that amount.”
Endorsements are a common source of the income for most celebrities, from singers to actors to sports stars.
