In all clubs, the so-called franchise or star players have various privileges or luxuries that the rest of the squad does not have. In Barcelona, that is no exception. But now, what differences are there between Lionel Messi and the club's new players, such as Pau Gasol?
Messi's the best player in the history of Barcelona. Without him, the last years of the club would have been mediocre. However, since he debuted he was in charge of conquering every tournament that he played and of transforming himself into a true legend. Because of his talent on the field, the leadership decided to allow him various types of actions that other members of the squad do not have.
Which? On vacation breaks, for example, he always gets a few more days off (usually four or five). Following this line, during the Holidays he always has a week off, which he uses to travel to his native Rosario. When it comes to negotiating the prizes per season, he always gets extra money if he manages to break a record.
Now, if we compare it with the privileges that Pau Gasol will have in basketball, several would be similar: more vacation days during recess and extra prizes for productivity. But knowing the salary difference between the two sports, the former Los Angeles Lakers pivot will come to the club with several sponsors that will give him extra income.
