Gross wage difference between women and men in Ligue 1

Make a lot of money in French football? Possible! On one condition: you are under contract with either Paris St. Germain (PSG) or Olympique Lyon (OL). This can be concluded from the salary ranking published by the French sports newspaper “L’Équipe” on Tuesday.

Only players from the two clubs can be found in the top 20 of the best earners. The Swiss national player Ramona Bachmann (31), who is under contract with the Parisians, is not on the list. Kadidiatou Diani (26, PSG) and Wendie Renard (31, OL) share first place. The two each receive around 38,000 Swiss francs a month – an annual salary of 456,000 francs.
