You could. But it's very unlikely you'll save anything on this.ohdeano wrote:i dont think anyone could live of $3500? coudl they?
You've also got to think of your future prospects. Even without knowing how old you are, your career as a footballer will be relatively short. So you need to plan for when the game is quite literally up. Therefore savings are VERY important.
$3,500 might be okay if you are in an industry where your career (and presumably your earning prospects) can expand over the next twenty or thirty years. Short of your transiting into a coaching or managerial role, its unlikely your soccer career will offer this longevity.
Having watched the S-League's 'progression' since its inception and the relatively short term careers of most of its foreign hires, I would advise you to look for as much as possible salary-wise.
