Charlton FD's pay is no match for his Manchester United rival.

Charlton, promoted to the Premier League last year, is understood to be ready to offer their new signing #65,000 a year – the same as some top players earn in a week.

A spokeswoman for Charlton said the club was confident of finding a new FD shortly. In comparison, the largest payer is understood to be rivals Manchester United which pays its FD David Gill in excess of #165,000.

One of Gill’s key assets is England captain David Beckham (left), who spent this week preparing for last night’s clash with Holland.

The move came as Deloitte & Touche released its tenth annual review of football finance, which found that income in the game for 1999/00 grew by #128m, or 13%, to #1.1bn.

This makes English football the richest league in the world and the first to break through the billion-pound Barrier.

Gerry Boon, Head of Deloitte & Touche Sport, said: ‘This record revenue comes before the full impact of the new TV deals kicks in – so yet more impressive growth is on the way. But, it is of critical importance that clubs use this extra money to repair their financial position.’
