Roman Yaremchuk is a Ukrainian professional footballer who plays as a striker for the Belgian team, Gent, and internationally for the Ukraine national football team.
Yaremchuk was born in Lviv, Ukraine on November 27, 1995. As a youth, he trained with the academic facilities of Karpaty Lviv and Dynamo Kyiv.
On September 6, 2008, Yaremchuk made his debut for Dynamo in Ukrainian National Youth Competition. In his debut match against FC Yunist Chernihiv, he beat the goalkeeper on two incidents. In his first season, he made combined 21 appearances including 10 goals.
He then started to play for Dynamo 2 Kyiv in 2013 playing his game number one for the team on July 14, 2013, against Desna Chernihiv in the Ukrainian First League. While staying with the club for two years, he made seven goals in 42 outings.
After the 2014-15 season, he was loaned out to Oleksandriya with whom he became player of the month in the Ukrainian Premier League. In August 2017, he signed a four-year contract with Gent who competes in the Belgian First Division A.
He played his first game for the Buffalos on August 27 2017 in a goalless draw against Anderlecht. He got his first goal with the club on November 3, 2017, in a 1-0 home victory over Standard Liege.
Since he arrived at Ghelamco, the six-foot-three striker has made 180 appearances and 67 goals across all tournaments. He was called up for the international duty in 2018 and as of yet has been featured in 26 games - scoring in competitions like Euro qualifications, friendly, Nations League, World Cup qualification, and the Euros 2020.
The detail regarding his salary from the Dynamo days is relatively an arduous topic to talk over. Data, though, suggest Belgium's heavy names like Anderlecht, Genk, Brugge, and Gent have been known to compensate their players considerably more than the league's average payouts.
Despite not having a fancy economy like that of Europe's big five leagues, the Jupiler league still rewards its athletes nobly.
As such sources set forth Yaremchuk's current salary at Gent is set around $600,000 a year with some claiming the figure is as high as $1 million; way ahead of the nation's median wage for a footballer ($250,000 per annum). With his present contract expiring in 2025, analysts predict the Ukrainian marksman overall earnings will likely hit $3 million to $4 million by the start of the 2025-26 season.
Surmising from all of his career market values from as low as €200,000 to as high as €13 million, it shows that his yearly pay has averaged around €800,000 to €900,000 a year since he turned pro in 2012. That implies Yaremchuk's to date earnings has reached over $10 million; ergo it should be wholesome to estimate his net worth lies in the region of $4 million- $5 million.
The Lviv-born midfielder is married to Christina Yaremchuk. The couple has been together for nine years and counting. Together, they are also parents to their son, born, July 19, 2019. The duo's romance dates back to their teenage years with Yaremchuk making his first appearance on Christiana's Insta on April 26, 2013.
Thereafter, they kept on updating their fans with the development of their relationship throughout their respective social media accounts. On June 28, 2013, the future Mrs. Yaremchuk shared a little about when she had actually started dating her footballer boyfriend.
Yet again, through her Insta handle, she posted a picture of herself with the then Dynamo's playmaker while subsequently writing, "7 months (and a series of love-themed emojis)." While the Yaremchuk couple is about to mark 10 years of being together, they are yet to share glimpses from their wedding or even the knowledge of the date for that matter.
