CHELSEA star Thiago Silva tops up his £95,000-a-week pay packet by charging fans £300 for video messages.
He is paid to send greetings such as “happy birthday” — and his fee for a business is £11,250.
The Brazilian veteran is on messaging site Cameo but footie fans hit out yesterday, with Martin Chardy telling The Sun: “How is earning £95,000-a-week not enough for him? What a joke.”
Referring to Chelsea’s oligarch owner, he added: “If he’s that desperate for money, perhaps he should ask Roman Abramovich for some Russian roubles before he quits.”
Hordes of other fans poked fun at the defender, 37, online.
But a satisfied customer said in a review: “Thank you so much, I love you. You’re the best player I have seen to wear the Chelsea top.”
Chelsea team-mate and Italian international Jorginho, 30, is also on the site, charging £123-a-pop.
Ex-stars are in on the action too. Fans can get a message from Match of the Day pundit Danny Murphy for £62.
Former footie hardman turned film star Vinnie Jones tops the money table by charging £249.
