World’s richest footballer, Faiq Bolkiah has left his Portuguese club side, Maritimo, without playing even once since joining them more than a year..




The player rescinded his contract without making his debut in Portugal.

Faiq moved from Leicester City to Maritimo in the summer of 2020 after having previously belonged to the Chelsea youth academy, though he never played for either club.

He only did make the bench for the Portugal side for a game against Sporting CP in February 2021.


Faiq is 15 billion euro fortune
Son of the prince of Brunei, Jefri Bolkiah, and nephew of the Sultan, Hassanal Bolkiah.


The winger was sent to play with Maritimo’s B team this season but he failed to make an impression there either and his contract until next summer was rescinded.

Faiq, who was born in Los Angeles, the US, nationalised in Brunei. He will continue to pursue his journey as a footballer.

“I’m a quick player, I like to make things happen. I’m a winger and a No.10, I like direct play and scoring goals,” he once said about his style of play.

Having begun his career with AFC Newbury in England, he played for Southampton, Arsenal, Chelsea and Stoke City before joining Leicester in 2016.


He recently spent 35 million euros in a month and have a pet tiger, which he once shared a video of as he nutmegged the animal.
