Barthez Salary & Net Worth

How much did Fabien Barthez earn?

Fabien Barthez has a net worth of...

30 Million Euros (35.5 Million Dollars)

The lowly French league was where our legend spent the majority of his career. But his stint at Manchester United was the one that most fans remember. Thanks to the English league's wide-reaching and ever-growing expansion, his performances came into the spotlight. He was a player who defied all logic when it came to his goalkeeping, and yet was at the peak for a long time. Even outside the sport, he was known for his eccentricity. The man endorsed McDonald's for crying out loud. Adidas also sponsored him whilst he was a player. This legend has a net worth of about 30 Million Euros from what we can gather.

Iconic Moments

Ready Spit Go
Fabien  Barthez most iconic moment, the French number 16 from Lavelanet, France
Fabulous Fab received a six-month ban from the French Football Federation for spitting at a referee. With half the ban suspended, and the other three months running across the close season, he missed just five matches. Four of them for Marseille, who had already lost the title by then.

Up the ante

The goalie was caught peeing on the pitch. He thought spitting was less disgusting, maybe? It's a nasty habit, and you never spit at anyone, let alone referees. Imagine him doing something like that in a post-Corona world. All hell would break loose. (Image: imgur.com)

Puff puff...

He's a well-known smoker to have played the game at the very top. He does push his boundaries everywhere in life, and this time it got him banned. We're not even going to get into why he did it. We're surprised that it wasn't something stronger or harder. Oh, he was caught smoking cannabis, in case you were wondering what we were talking about. He should add Ban as his middle name. Fab has shot himself in the foot, more than once doing something silly. He has probably learned his lesson by now. (Image: imgur.com)

Man Ununited

A square peg in a round hole, the freak had a not so good time in the northwest of England. The wiring inside his head gone haywire, thanks to the inclement British weather. It's such a shame because he was entertaining to watch if you were an opponent or even a neutral. (Image: imgur.com)

Risky Affair

It would be unfair to call him a flop at United. He redeemed himself and produced some spectacular moments on the pitch. He has his manager Alex Ferguson to thank for keeping the faith in him. We wish it had lasted a few more years, but the man missed the snails so bad that he got back to France the moment 2004 dawned. The snails were why he was acting weird in the first place.

Linda is a Canadian model who was involved with him for a brief time. She couldn't bear the glare from his shiny top. It's too much exposure, even for a supermodel. (Image: imgur.com)

That soul-piercing gaze is too much for anyone to take. Imagine taking a penalty against him. Alain looks like your typical Frenchman from yesteryear. (Image: imgur.com)
