horse death "Tarek mountain" Which Ferguson owned.. its price exceeds the most expensive football stars in the world
At the beginning of the new millennium, a horse called “Gibraltar” became famous in Britain, winning dozens of races, and the historic coach of Manchester United Sir Alex Ferguson received part of his ownership.
A few days ago, a newspaper revealed,thesunThe British (The Sun) reported that Gibraltar died many years after he stopped participating in racing, but he continued to generate money for his owners thanks to his rare bloodline.
The death of the horse “Gibraltar”
The newspaper says that the famous horse was worth 200 million pounds when he stopped competing in horse racing in 2002, a huge number that exceeds the prices of the most expensive football stars, both in the past and now.
The market value of the most expensive football player in the world is currently 160 million euros, which is the French Kylian Mbappe, the star of Paris Saint-Germain, compared to 150 million euros, the value of the Norwegian Erling Halland, the star of Manchester City.
In terms of player prices, there is only one player whose transfer value exceeded the price of Gibraltar, the Brazilian Neymar da Silva, who moved from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain for 222 million euros in 2017.
Its price is 3 times more than the most expensive player in the world
One year before the price of the horse “Gibraltar” reached 200 million pounds, that is, in 2001, the French star Zinedine Zidane was considered the most expensive player in the world.
At the time, Real signed Zidane from Juventus for 46 million euros, and he remained the most expensive player in the world until 2009, when Brazilian Ricardo Kaka joined from Milan to Real Madrid in particular for 56 million pounds.
With the exception of Neymar, no player has moved so far from one club to another with a value of up to 200 pounds, knowing that the 222 million euros that Paris Saint-Germain paid for his services was the value of the penalty clause in his contract with Barcelona.
The Gibraltar horse caused disputes between Ferguson and a number of its other owners, and the case reached the courts, and what further complicated the case was that the other owners, who are from the famous American Glazer family, owned the Manchester United club that Ferguson is training.
