Is Marta Too Expensive for the Women’s Football/Soccer?
When Marta started playing professional outside of her home country, Brazil, she was young and got paid a normal salary as any other talented female player.
From 2004-2008 Marta played 103 games for Umea IK and scored 111 goals. This performance got the world’s attention and many clubs in the world wanted Marta in their squad. Then the “problem” started. Umea had to go out and find money that has never before been known in the footballs history. When Marta left Umea after winning many titles with theเว็บแทงบอลปลอดภัย ufabet club, the club almost got bankrupt. 2010 Umea played with a young squad after losing all their stars because of a serious financial problems.
Marta signed for Los Angeles Sol 2009 and played one season there. Marta was named the MVP (most valuable player) of the year. Everybody thought that Marta would be the key for the WPS becoming the best women’s league in the history of the sport. In January 2010 the shock came. Los Angles Sol quit from the WPS because of serious financial problems. Marta was free to join any other club.
Marta signed for Gold Pride 2010 and played one season there. Gold Pride won the league and Marta named the MVP again. No doubt that Marta is the most known female player in the history of the sport but then the new shock comes to reality. Gold Pride does not exist any more. Marta’s 3rd club suffers from serious financial problems.
The question is: Is Marta worth the money that no club seems to be able to handle?
