Gullit Salary & Net Worth

How much did Ruud Gullit earn?

Ruud Gullit has a net worth of...

30 Million Euros (35.4 Million Dollars)

The '70s and the '80s were not a very good time if you wanted to make big bucks as a footballer. Football was a widely popular sport, but nowhere near the level, it is today with regard to the money spent. It was simpler and much more enjoyable back then in a lot of ways. Money has ruined the sport largely, and we're thankful that this legend played when things were still acceptable. His career began in '79 and ended in '98. With very few endorsements to back him up, his net worth is estimated to be not more than 30 million Euros.

Iconic Moments

Heartbreak Kid

She was the one who hit him the hardest when she told him she wanted a divorce. Estelle was his third wife, and things took an ugly turn when everything became public. She was tired of him cheating and left for a younger man. That's what you get when you go around being an absolute moron. (Image: imgur.com)

Happier Times

They were married for twelve years, but it all ended because his brain cells stop functioning whenever he sees women folk. Infidelity in a marriage is the worst that you could do to your partner. The legend has also been divorced twice prior. Get it together, big boy. (Image: imgur.com)

Dread the Dreads

It was a sight to behold. His hair was instrumental in crafting his persona as a player. He was powerful and had great stamina. Combine that with his aggression, defenders were dealt with a bad hand every time he came on. The long dreads played their part too. (Image: imgur.com)

The Predator

The look on Frank's face says it all. He toned down over the years, but at the peak, it was just eerie to watch. Word on the street is that the movie character, Predator, was largely inspired by his look. Was it not uncomfortable to exert himself with all that hair? (Image: imgur.com)

Ball Winner

The 1987 Ballon d'Or was one of the best moments of his illustrious career. He had just joined AC Milan and put in performance after performance that was worthy of the laurel. He had a great year leading up to his move to Italy from the Eredivisie. (Image: imgur.com)

Heart Winner

The Dutch legend dedicated his award to Nelson Mandela, who was in prison at that time. When he got an opportunity to meet the legendary African, the footballer handed him the trophy. It was a gesture that moved Mandela, who considered the big Dutchman to be a friend. (Image: imgur.com)
