Salaries reports always make for interesting reading and a recent report on soccer salaries is no different. Some players are just stealing money.

Here is the Only Time Will Tell All Overpaid Starting XI.

Goal: Carlo Cudicini, Chelski, $5.6 million.
Defender: Asier Del Horno, Athletic Bilbao, $4.7 million.
Defender: Kakha Kaladze, AC Milan, $6.3 million.
Defender: Giuseppe Favalli, AC Milan, $3.1 million .
Defender: Robert Huth, Middlesbrough, 4.7 million.
Midfielder: Harry Kewell, Liverpool, $7.3 million.

Midfielder: Patrick Vieria, Inter Milan, $7.8 million.
Strikers: Michael Owen, Newcastle, $10.19 million.

A couple of notes on the salary report: Now you know why AC Milan is struggling this year, they have all older players being paid a ton of money. Salaries are so out of control that Mr. West Ham United Broken Leg King Kieron Dyer makes $7.8 million.
