2011 Philadelphia Union Player Salaries

Posted on 09 May 2011 by Breton Bonnette

A little late to the party after a busy weekend  and the necessary mourning period that comes with a Union loss – but the MLSPA released the Union’s player salaries for the year. A couple surprises in there…

PHI Agorsor, Christopher F $ 42,000.00 $ 42,000.00

PHI Califf, Daniel D $ 250,000.00 $ 250,000.00

PHI Carroll, Brian M $ 160,000.00 $ 160,000.00

PHI Daniel, Keon M $ 42,000.00 $ 46,410.00

PHI Farfan, Gabriel M $ 42,000.00 $ 42,000.00

PHI Farfan, Michael M $ 42,000.00 $ 79,500.00

PHI Gonzalez, Juan Diego D $ 189,000.00 $ 193,462.50

PHI Harvey, Jordan D $ 61,875.00 $ 63,125.00

PHI Holder, Thorne GK $ 42,000.00 $ 42,000.00

PHI Houapeu, Levi F $ 32,604.00 $ 32,604.00

PHI Le Toux, Sebastian M $ 155,000.00 $ 179,000.00

PHI MacMath, Zac GK $ 80,000.00 $ 125,000.00

PHI Mapp, Justin M $ 175,000.00 $ 183,333.33

PHI McInerney, Jack F $ 71,250.00 $ 135,416.67

PHI Miglioranzi, Stefani M $ 130,000.00 $ 153,125.00

PHI Mondragon, Faryd GK $ 230,000.00 $ 396,666.67

PHI Mwanga, Danny F $ 120,000.00 $ 226,250.00

PHI Nakazawa, Kyle M $ 44,000.00 $ 44,000.00

PHI Okugo, Amobi M $ 85,000.00 $ 168,000.00

PHI Pfeffer, Zach M $ 55,000.00 $ 65,000.00

PHI Richter, Ryan F $ 32,604.00 $ 32,604.00

PHI Ruiz, Carlos F $ 260,004.00 $ 306,670.67

PHI Torres, Roger M $ 105,600.00 $ 108,725.00

PHI Valdes, Carlos D $ 180,000.00 $ 180,000.00

PHI Williams, Sheanon F $ 42,000.00 $ 42,000.00

The clear money drain comes in the form of Juan Diego Gonzalez, a starter for a short stint upon his arrival in 2010. With Califf out for the trip to Portland, Gonzalez seemed to be a relatively logical choice for his replacement but the $189,000 earner didn’t get the nod. Other surprises included the youngster Zach Pfeffer – earner of $55,000 – making more than starter Sheanon Williams, Keon Daniel, and the Farfan twins. Carlos Ruiz and Faryd Mondragon, not surprisingly, are the highest earners on the team in 2011 with Danny Califf a close third. That upgrade of the defense cost a Piotr Nowak pretty penny but we’re pretty sure no one is complaining much.
