Thuram Salary & Net Worth

How much did Lillian Thuram earn?

Lillian Thuram has a net worth of...

25 Million Euros (29.4 Million Dollars)

This French legend began playing in Monaco before establishing himself in Italy with Parma and Juventus. His club career ended in 2008 with FC Barcelona. He has represented his country, France, from 1994 to 2008. He was known to be an aggressive player, but this world-class defender was one of the best when it came to tactical superiority. He was also technically sound and an overall gifted athlete. He amassed his wealth from playing and sponsorships. Nike was the main supporter of this legend. We think he's worth about 25 million Euros approximately. He has supported various causes after retirement and has become an activist of sorts.

Iconic Moments

World Champion

Nobody believed it was going to happen. The French team of 1998 were the underdogs going into the finals in Paris. Honestly, no one really thought that they would even traverse past the first knockout round. They took the game to extra-time against Paraguay, and the match went to penalties against Italy in the quarters. (Image: imgur.com)

Impenetrable

Whilst the semifinal, was relatively easy, the final was always going to be a sharply contested game. Everyone knows about the goals Zidane scored for Les Bleus against Brazil, but not a lot know that it was in fact our legend who got his nation to the finals. He scored the equalizer and the winner against Croatia in the semis. Combine that with his solid defensive performance, the team let in just two goals in the entire tournament and became the Champions of the world. (Image: imgur.com)

Activist Origins

You know that Nelson Mandela was going to affect you, the moment you meet him. The sincerity in our legend's eyes is evident in this picture. He has taken up some really important issues to stand up for, and with anti-racism being the main focus of his efforts, Mandela's influence can be seen pretty clearly. (Image: imgur.com)

Aspiring Politician

Equality is also something that he fights for. He's known to take a stand against politicians and their policies. He's become somewhat of a champion for causes, including same-sex marriage and work with refugees. We think he'd be a much better politician than the current ones that they've got in France.

The two have shared happier times. The only blemish that we can think of in his life is when we found out that he allegedly indulged in domestic abuse against her. That's sad, if true. (Image: imgur.com)
