While NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman is busy negotiating with Putin, his daughter Trinity became the highest-paid player in her soccer league. The NWSL Rookie of the Year was recently awarded a contract extension with the Washington Spirit agreeing to a four-year guaranteed deal for USD$1.1 million (AU$1.62 million). Before securing the bag, the 19-year-old was previously on a three-year contract with a net pay of USD$42,000 (AU$62,000). That’s a solid bump in salary, right there.

The forward will earn USD$281,000 (AU$413,000) yearly, hurdling the USD$250,000 (AU$368,000) salaries of United States national team superstars Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe. While a healthy chunk of change, Australian Sam Kerr is still the highest-paid player in women’s soccer. The striker recently extended her contract with Chelsea until 2024, with the deal reportedly worth AU$600,000 a year. Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi.
Trinity Rodman caught the league’s attention after having a successful season in 2020, which led to her becoming the youngest player to be selected in the first round of the NWSL draft in January 2021. Rodman would go on to win Rookie of the Year, and the Young Player of the Year award from US soccer, and was the only one from her team to cop an invite to the US Women’s National Team training camp. With all the recent success, perhaps Trinity can support her father’s alleged financial troubles.
With multiple NBA championships and individual awards to his name, Rodman earned big coin for his services on the court. His total earnings in the league were USD$27 million in salary, which is the same as around USD$43 million today after adjusting for inflation. Yet, Celebrity Net Worth has Dennis Rodman with just USD$500,000 to his name in 2022. According to the outlet, his high-flying lifestyle and child support issues were the leading factors behind his surprisingly low net worth.
