R1 million – that’s the motivation for Bafana Bafana to go for goals at the 2010 World Cup.
It was a problem even highlighted by FIFA president Sepp Blatter – and one which SAFA is keen to solve by offering the cash incentives for the players to share.
“We want our team to play with pride and passion, we want to inspire them,” SAFA CEO Leslie Sedibe was quoted as saying by Reuters.
However, Sedibe adds that the perennial problem of player payment for the tournament has not yet been finalised, and that the mother body must still hold talks with the six-man players’ committee headed by captain Aaron Mokoena.
