Bambang Pamungkas aka Bepe occupied the highest place was by the pay 114 million in rupiah, while Aliyudin occupied the last place was in big five by the pay 88 million in rupiah. The uniqueness, from the row big five, four among them were the player from the soccer team of Persija Jakarta. Indeed if being compared with world soccer players, their pay was visible small, but if we being compared their pay with, for instance, the pay of a director of a company in Indonesia, then their pay could be said very big.

So, who said the football player could not be rich?
