Martins Beats Drogba As MLS African Top Earner 

By Johnny Edward:

Seattle Sounders Nigerian forward Obafemi Martins is the 12th highest paid player in Major League Soccer behind top stars Ricardo Kaka, Sebastien Giovinco, Michael Bradley, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.

As the MLS Players Union released the details of salaries, the former Nigerian international who has scored 13 goals this season is paid an annual salary of $2.4m at Seattle Sounders, earning more than Didier Drogba earns at Montreal Impact.

 Ivorien former Chelsea striker Drogba takes home $1,666,668 per annum from Montreal Impact.

Meanwhile, Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, who left Merseyside in the summer, earns $6,200,004 per annum at LA Galaxy while Frank Lampard, now at New York City, is on $6,000,000.

Ex-West Ham captain Nigel Reo-Coker is paid the comparatively meagre $275,000. 

Shaun-Wright Phillips earns significantly less than his brother Bradley at New York Red Bulls. Older sibling Shaun is on $116,004 per year, while free-scoring Bradley is paid $600,000.
