Thomas Muller: Football players are just commercial goods

Man Utd Muller bid rejected

Mullers is no fan of how clubs treat their players, considering the amounts of money circulation.


The bright example of the situation is Carlos Tevez who reportedly earns £615,000-per-week at Shanghai Shenhua.

The World champion believes no players is worth such amounts of money, and the game is turning into a “circus”.


“The figures that are being paid these days are absurd. No human being is worth that kind of money,” Muller told GQ.

“Modern day football players are like commercial goods. But this should not affect us. You are only going to put yourself under a lot of pressure if you start thinking about a high transfer fee.”
