SOUTH AFRICA OFFERED R1m FOR EVERY GOAL

Would you need any incentive to score a goal for your country in the World Cup?

The South African Football Association has decided to offer a bonus to it’s players in this Summer’s World Cup.

For every goal that Bafana Bafana score on home turf, the South African equivalent to the FA will pay a 1 million Rand bonus, to be shared among the team.

Translating to roughly £87,000, Leslie Sedibe, SAFA chief executive officer, said of the bonus: ‹Ĺ›We want our team to play with pride and passion, we want to inspire them.˘€žË˜

Sedibe also revealed that SAFA is to hold talks with a six-man players’ committee, headed by captain Aaron Mokoena, to discuss negotiations over a general payment and bonus structure for the finals.


However, Sedibe did warn that ‹Ĺ›It won’t be a blank cheque.˘€žË˜

South Africa has scored just 32 times in 34 matches in the last two years.

Personally, whilst I can see the benefits of such a scheme – but if a player is thinking of that bonus when he steps out onto the pitch, he’s disrespecting the fans and the shirt – what do you think?
