A comparison across Europe and Brazil - are these figures correct?

I must say I was surprised by the figures in this article but when I did a little research it does appear as though no one really knows what a PGMOL referee earns (except the HMRC, of course).

Another thing that struck me was the wide disparity across the European leagues and I didn't expect the English top division to be the poor relations. Perhaps the greed of the EPL should have told me differently.

I don't think that information is right. PGMOL SG1 referees were on £70k plus years ago with additional match fees, so I cannot believe they are only on £45k now.
