Valderrama Salary & Net Worth

How much did Carlos Valderrama earn?

Carlos Valderrama has a net worth of...

25 Million Euros (29.5 Million Dollars)

The man with the exotic hair, this midfielder, liked to see more of the ball, which is why he played a bit down the field. We're not sure what's it with the Colombians and their lackadaisical attitude to the game. He was a typical example of that. He did not contribute defensively and was hardly motivated, but did have his moments of magic on the pitch. As a naturally gifted ballplayer, his demeanor was overlooked by his coaches, and his career that lasted a little over two decades, the majority of which was in the Americas. We think he's not worth more than 25 Million Euros net.

What does Valderrama currently do?

He had a very brief stint as a coach. He found out that involved too much work and quit the whole idea as soon as he started it. Now he just watches games and commentates on his countrymen from time to time. (Image: imgur.com)

Iconic Moments

Mind The Hair

It looks like he's trying hard to protect his hair than he is trying to the ball here. He loved his hair, and so did we. The kid had some of the most gorgeous locks in the entire footballing world back in the day. (Image: imgur.com)

Love Your Hair El Pibe

The Don's not really shaking El Pibe's hands. He's just standing there mesmerized by his fur. If there was anything that Diego was going to get jealous about, it might as well be about this hair. (Image: imgur.com)

Still Loving It

The years have rolled by, but the Argentine's admiration for this gentleman's hair has not waned. We think El Pibe had the best hair in the entire history of the sport. (Image: imgur.com)

Jealous Becks

Now I thought I was cool until I met The Kid. Dave Becks probably thought that. The Englishman is a style icon, but everything came so naturally to the Colombian. (Image: imgur.com)

Buy One Get One

He's discovered a place that sells him bracelets on the cheap. Why else would he have as much as these on his hands? It's incredible how he's still got the same look going on, and we don't have one complaint about him. (Image: imgur.com)

Old Habits

Thankfully, he didn't wear all that jewelry whilst he was in his prime. That would have weighed down on him. He can enjoy as much of it as he wants now. (Image: imgur.com)

Druglords like Football Too

Pablo Escobar is the only other Colombian who is more famous than El Pibe. The kingpin liked football, and our star hung out with him, we guess. There's a fine line that you do not cross when you're trying to set a positive example for youngsters in a crime-infested country. Hanging out with men wanted by police agencies across North America is one of those. Not a lot has been made about it. It's, in fact, been buried in a deep hole. We don't suspect anything foul, but it's still a lesson for footballers. (Image: imgur.com)

Hang out in America for long, and you start calling football soccer, begin wearing pink, and get to drive a Hyundai. This is a crime. (Image: imgur.com)


House - Where does he live?

El Pibe is probably looking at the reflection of his hair on the telly. He's not really watching anything else. We think this is somewhere in Colombia. (Image: imgur.com)
