Source of Wealth: Football
Joe Cole Net Worth: English professional footballer, Joe Cole has an estimated net worth $35 million (£21m) as of 2014, according to the Sunday Times rich list. Born Joseph John Cole on 8 November 1981 in Paddington, London, England. Currently playing for Aston Villa, Cole started his career in 1998 playing for West Ham United, where he played for five years. Cole also played for Chelsea 2003–2010, Liverpool 2010–2013, returning to West Ham 2013–2014. He also played for the England national team; 56 appearances and scoring 10 goals.
With his contract up for renewal, it is unlikely he will remain at West Ham, where he began his career. Cole returned to the Hammers after an unhappy three years at Liverpool, an experience sweetened only by a reported £3 million “golden goodbye” paid by the club to get his wages off their books. He amassed much of his wealth during his seven years with Chelsea. Now on a much-reduced salary, Cole’s wealth is steady.
