Former Barcelona maestro Xavi reportedly earns a salary of €10 million to ply his trade for Qatari club Al Sadd.
A real pittance, we're sure you'll agree.
So you'll be glad to hear that, according to ESPN, the 37-year-old has just been named the winner of the Doha Bank's completely random lottery jackpot for June, bagging him roughly £210,000.
Arriving to hold up his massive cheque and pose for photos in his fanciest distressed jorts, the midfielder said:
"Winning the QAR 1 million cash prize was an unexpected but welcome surprise,"
"I had opened my account in Doha Bank on the Dec. 5 2016, as I had taken interest in the Al Dana program after hearing about how Doha Bank encourages their customers to save money, and get a chance to become millionaires, as well as the opportunity to win other cash prizes."
Beautiful, off-the-cuff words from Xavi there. Who knows, he might now be able to avoid slinging blankets to supplement his income. Some aren't so lucky…
