West Brom's hero of Old Trafford hero Saido Berahino earns just £850-a-week writes John Cross.

Berahino 20 stunned Manchester United with a sensational winner to heap the pressure on David Moyes with a shock result which stunned football.

But Berahino has also left United’s millionaires red faced because he is on a tiny fraction of their mega-stars' salary.

The champions' first-choice strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie are both on £250000-a-week - which works out as nearly as much in a day as Berahino gets in a year.

England Under-21 international Berahino is currently in talks with West Brom about a new deal.

His existing contract gives the Baggies an option to extend his deal on the same terms until 2015.

Burundi-born Berahino one of the smallest earners in the Premier League could then leave for just £300000 in compensation.

It has also emerged that Berahino was texted by Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck before the game who told him to “have a good one”.

Indeed Berahino has been in superb form this season having also scored against Arsenal in the Capital One Cup last week and hit a hat-trick in an earlier round before his heroics at Old Trafford.
