Obafemi Martins remains one of Nigeria’s most valuable players in the world despite parting ways with Chinese Super League club Wuhan FC earlier this year.
The 36-year-old striker spent about six months scoring one goal in 10 appearances across competitions for
the Han Army before leaving them in January 2021
In spite of the stop to his weekly earnings, the rugged attacker is still ranked fourth richest Nigerian football star
with a net worth of about N12.6 billion ($35 million).
Statistics reveal that Chelsea legend John Obi Mikel is the richest among all Nigerian footballers with over N17 billion,
while Odion Ighalo and Emmanuel Emenike are tied with N16 billion net worth each.
Victor Moses, Ahmed Musa, Vincent Enyeama, Victor Anichebe, Alex Iwobi, and Kelechi Iheanacho complete
the list of the top 10 Nigerian richest stars so far as reported
Obafemi started his football career at a Nigerian Academy FC Ebedei in 1999 before crossing to Italy to join Serie C side Reggiana two years later.
The prolific goalscorer has since then toured around the world doing what he knows how to do best and has
equally won silverware in Italy, England, Russia, United States, and China.
He won most of his titles while playing for Inter Milan – winning the Serie A title with them in 2006. He also won the Coppa Italia twice and one Supercoppa Italiana during his reign with them.
The striker also boasts of some exotic cars in his garage which further explains his thirst for class among other things.
