Ghana can boast of talented football stars playing actively in Europe and other continents.
These football stars are not just playing well but they are among the highest paid footballers in their teams.
One such football star is Mubarak Wakaso who currently is one of the richest active footballers in Ghana.
The 28-year-old box-to-box midfielder has carved a niche for himself since he shot to fame 14 years ago during the U-17 World Cup in Peru.
Wakaso has never looked back and his impressive performances have earned him big money moves.
Wakaso is really rich and no one can dispute that fact as he has acquired lots of properties.
The diminutive midfielder can boast of more than two houses which have an estimated value of over $2 million.
Wakaso’s garage is full of expensive cars and he has been living like a king.
Until Ghana’s exit from the ongoing African Cup of Nations in Egypt, he was the country’s best player.
In four games, the former Ashanti Gold midfielder won two Man of the Match awards.
Wakaso was born in Tamale, Northern Region, he began his senior career in Ashanti Gold SC.
In 2008, he moved abroad and signed with Elche CF in Spain on a five-year contract, but only joined the club nearly two months later, however, due to international duty.
In late January 2011, after several bouts of indiscipline and internal codes violations, Wakaso was released by the Valencians.
Shortly after, he joined another side in the region and Segunda División, Villarreal CF's B-team.
On 27 February 2011, Wakaso made his La Liga debut, coming on as a substitute for José Catalá in the last minutes of a 2–2 away draw against Racing de Santander.
He only played six matches in his first full season, and the Yellow Submarine was also relegated after 12 years in the top flight.
Wakaso signed for RCD Espanyol on 11 July 2012, penning a four-year contract. He started in 23 league matches for the Catalans in his first and only season.
Wakaso currently plies his trade in the Spanish La Liga for Alavés.
Wakaso made his Black Stars debut in 2012 and has gone on to feature 54 times, scoring 12 goals in the process.
