Patrik Hrosovsky's Net Worth and Salary
Data claims Belgian giants like Anderlecht, Genk, Brugge, and Gent have been continuously known to spend well on their players' salaries. The figures as per some sources easily exceed the Jupiler Pro League's average payouts of $240,000. The top teams in the Belgian league have been told of rewarding their athletes with relatively better class compensations if not as high as Europe's big five leagues.
That being the case, Hrosovsky's current salary with Genk is allegedly set at around $1.8 million. In fact, the Slovak is reportedly the biggest receiver in the club. By the time his existing contract expires in 2023, he will have received over $8 million exclusively from Genk's wages.
While the numbers concerning his Czech's league days are yet to be discussed, Hrosovsky's takeaways from those periods should have easily added up to over $4 million- $5 million; speculating in light of several averages, statistics as well his every year's market value. To that saying, his net worth could very well be assumed upwards of $5 million.
