Jimmy Greaves is an English former football player and has a net worth of $11 million. Jimmy Greaves earned his net worth from playing professional football. He made his debut for Chelsea in 1957 at the tender age of 17. Within a couple of years of being at the club, he not only secured a concrete place in the first team but became the youngest ever Top Goalscorer, scoring the most goals in both the 1959 and 1961 seasons. People knew he was good at scoring goals but no one on earth would have been able to predict just how good he would prove to be in the ten years he was with Tottenham Hotspur. When he finally left the club in 1970, he had notched up arguably the most impressive statistics any striker in the English game has ever had for one club. In 1970, he joined West Ham United in part exchange in the deal that took Martin Peters to White Hart Lane. He retired in 1971 having played 516 Football League games and netted 357 goals, an all-time record for the top flight. He made a comeback with Brentwood in December 1975, aged 35. This was so successful that he signed for Chelmsford City in the Southern League for the 1976-77 season. In the mid-1970s Greaves battled a well-documented alcohol problem, finally quitting drinking in February 1978. He also worked frequently for TV-am as a TV critic and was a resident team captain on ITV sports quiz Sporting Triangles as well as co-hosting the popular Saturday morning kids TV show, The Saturday Show. In 2002 he was made an Inaugural Inductee to the English Football Hall of Fame. In 2003, he released his autobiography, Greavsie. He has written 18 books in partnership with his life-long friend, the journalist and author Norman Giller. Jimmy Greaves was born in England on February 20th, 1940.
James Peter 'Jimmy' Greaves (born 20 February 1940 in East Ham, England) is an English former football player, England's third highest international goalscorer, the highest goalscorer in the history of Tottenham Hotspur football club, the highest goalscorer in the history of English top flight football and more recently a television pundit - famous for his trademark catchphrase it's a funny old game. He is considered to be one of the finest goalscorers of his generation.[citation needed]
Greaves scored on his debut for Chelsea in 1957. He finished as top League goalscorer twice whilst at Chelsea, in 1959 and 1961, and his 41 league goals in the 1960-61 season remains a club record. However, they did not win any major trophies while he was playing for them.
In 1960 he became the youngest player to score 100 league goals in English football, at the age of 20 years 290 days, and at 23 was the same age as Dixie Dean when he scored his 200th.
He briefly joined the Italian side A.C. Milan in 1961, after reportedly turning down a huge offer from Newcastle United and scored ten goals in 10 games, but he failed to settle and left after only a few months. Bill Nicholson then signed him for Tottenham Hotspur for lb99,999. The unusual fee was intended to relieve Greaves of the pressure of being the first lb100,000 player. Greaves however has rejected this, claiming Nicholson did not want to be the first manager to sign a player for lb100,000.
Greaves played at Spurs from 1961 to 1970, scoring a club record of 266 goals in 379 matches, including 220 goals in the First Division. Greaves finished as top League goalscorer in 1963, 1964, 1965 and 1969. His record of finishing top goalscorer in six seasons has never been matched.
With Spurs, Greaves won the FA Cup in 1962 and 1967, scoring against Burnley in the former final. He also won the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1963 - scoring twice in the 5-1 defeat of Atl'etico Madrid, ensuring that Spurs became the first Br
