Lam, who plays for Muangthong United, reportedly receives about US$11,200 per month, making him the league's highest-paid goalkeeper of all time by some way.
Lam joined Muangthong United from Hai Phong FC on a three-year deal in February, 2019, after the Thai club were impressed with his performance in Vietnam's successful AFF Suzuki Cup campaign in 2018.
Lam played all 30 matches and had a successful first season in Thai League 2019 and helped dragged the club from early relegation fears to a fifth-place finish.
The 25-year-old goalkeeper is currently with his club side preparing for the upcoming season after a short break with his family in Russia.
According to the website Transfermartkt, Lam is also the most expensive Vietnamese player with a value of 300,000 euros ($335,000), while striker Nguyen Cong Phuong is second at 200,000 euros ($223,500). — VNS
