Report: sergej's salary in GORILLAZ amounts to €9,500 per month
Finnish esports athlete Jere "sergej" Salo makes €9,500 per month under the current contract with GORILLAZ, as reported by Ilta-Sanomat, whose journalists studied the tax documents of the player.
Based on the published report, over the nine months of last year sergej received €86,000, which in terms of months is the indicated amount of €9,500. Citing their sources, the authors noted that this entire amount is the salary of the esports athlete.
According to the journalists, the fact that Salo continues to receive money is evidenced by his contract, which is valid until the end of 2023. Besides him, Robin "flusha" Rönnquist and Miikka "suNny" Kemppi also have employment agreements with GORILLAZ.
The GORILLAZ roster was created in early 2021 and has since been supported by an unnamed investor. During this time, the team changed the lineup several times, but never managed to achieve any success.
This year, the European team has not played a single official match. According to Ilta-Sanomat, sergej, flusha and suNny have yet to decide on the players to finalize the lineup.
