However, in terms of money, 23-year-old Faiq Bolkiah has been valued higher than both Lionel Messi and Cristiana Ronaldo, who are considered to be world-class players.

It has been reported by the UK Sun that the player, who now plays for Maritimo in Portugal, is one of the heirs of Hassanal Bolkiah’s £13 billion wealth.

Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah is the ruler of Brunei, a South East Asian nation known for its oil reserves.

Bolkiah was born in Los Angeles and maintains dual citizenship in both Brunei and the United States.

Bradfield College, in the United Kingdom, was where he received his education.

He has been dubbed “the wealthiest footballer in the world,” with an estimated net worth of US$20 billion, according to Forbes magazine.

The fact that his father is Jefri Bolkiah, the oil tycoon’s brother, means that Faiq is considered a member of their royal family, making him one of the richest footballers alive.

The Southampton F.C. Academy signed Bolkiah in 2009 when he was still playing for A.F.C. Newbury, a one-year agreement that began in 2010. He remained at Southampton at least until the end of the 2011 season.

When Bolkiah was a teenager, he signed a two-year youth deal with Chelsea.

When Bolkiah was at Arsenal, he was selected to play in the 2013 Lion City Cup, where he played against Corinthians, Eintracht Frankfurt, PSV Eindhoven, and a Singapore youth selection. His contract with Chelsea was slated to end in the summer of 2016, thus he decided to leave the club in December 2015.

In March 2016, after a trial with Stoke City, he signed a reported three-year professional deal with Leicester City, according to reports. In addition, in the summer of 2019, he agreed to a one-year extension to his contract.

After signing a free transfer agreement with Martimo of Portugal’s Primeira Liga on September 23, 2020, Bolkiah was selected to the starting lineup of the club’s under-23 squad, and he made his debut three months later in a 3–3 home draw against Sporting CP U23 after being picked to the starting lineup. His debut as a substitute for Martimo came in a league match against Sporting CP 45 days later, marking the beginning of his professional career.

Against Gondomar on April 11, 2021, he made his senior debut for Martimo B, entering the game as a substitute in the team’s 2–1 victory.
