After a FIFA date that brought with it iconic and controversial moments both in Europe and in Concacaf and Conmebol, Liga MX finally returned to play matchday 8 of the Apertura 2021 tournament , which is currently led by Club América and, Until now, it has negative surprises such as the situation that occurs with Chivas and Pumas, who are far from the stellar places of the campaign.
The return of the highest category in the country also serves to learn a little beyond the economic aspect that encompasses soccer players, who obtain great profits for their work. At least that's how it can be seen thanks to the studies carried out by the Global Sports Salaries Survey, as well as sources consulted by the Milenio y la Hobby portal.
The media in turn made a comparison of the stratospheric salaries of the figures in Liga MX and those who, on the contrary, are far from being the best. As an example of this, the juiciest monthly salaries held by two Tigres players were placed, these being André-Pierre Gignac (8.8 million pesos) and Florian Thauvin (7.6 million pesos).
On the other hand, homegrown elements from the three most popular teams in the country appear: America, Chivas and Cruz Azul. The studies consulted report that these soccer players, who are just beginning their adventure in professionalism, can earn 15, 20 or even up to 50 thousand pesos a month, depending on the interference they have in their respective institutions despite their age.
That said, the average of soccer players in Liga MX per month is around 643 thousand Mexican pesos , although there are examples of soccer players who earn much more than the aforementioned amount. In the Liga Expansión MX the situation changes considerably, since the portal ' Goal ' reported that here, the best players, add up to about 400 thousand pesos per month ; that is, less than the average of the first division.
