    If you're earning that much, I'm pretty sure you can afford a decent accountant unless you're an idiot.

    Hi, my club decided this would be a unique way to interact with supporters and the public in general. I appreciate this may be hard to believe, but I genuinely am a professional footballer, and are happy to answer any questions you may have. For commercial purposes I am unable to reveal my identity, so will not be able to answer questions that give who I am away. I look forward to hearing your questions and will try to answer them as best as I can.

    Note: This is an exercise to interact with students, for an educational partnership between the club and various academic institutions in the area.
    Do you get pissed off when you see players like Bebe playing in a higher league and earning more than you?

    I don't need an accountant, that's my salary pre tax, whether you believe me or not is totally up to you.

    I don't get why you are anon? Surely if I was in your position I would get as much publicity as possible? Seems bs to me, the fact you can't even name your team because of commercial reasons haha

    It's a way of engaging with people about professional footballers, and as a case study to academic institutions particular those with a heavy emphasis on sport

    I'm bound by contract because I cannot answer questions about things that go on behind closed doors. For example if I told you I play for team x, people would ask me questions about manager team talks etc, all of which I'm unable to disclose. Commercially I'm sponsored by firms, so cannot answer questions about my deal with them. It's up to you whether you believe me or not, I can understand your scepticism, but frankly you can make up you're own mind.

    You sound like a decent down to earth bloke, most people think footballers are arrogant pricks.

    What would you do if you weren't a footballer? University ect.

    My bad, thought I quoted you but I didn't.

    What sort of tactics do you prefer? I'm a huge fan of the 4-4-2 diamond after Liverpool introduced it this season, but for me I would like all my 4 midfielders to have a high work rate and track back. Or are you more of a 4-4-2 flat (or 4-2-3-1, variations of it)? So would you classify yourself as a "British" player or are you more technical? Also how talk are you. Cheers and good luck in your career man.

    Hi mate, most guys in the lower leagues are alright, it's just the prima donners! I'd have gone to study something in the media probably.
