FC Platinum raises player bonuses

As the league title race heads for the home stretch, Premiership Money Bags FC Platinum have raised the stakes in winning bonuses for players as they bid to lay their hands on the coveted league title.

The cash-rich club, which attracted some of the finest players in the country, including Soccer Star of the Year Charles Sibanda, into their ranks before the start of the campaign, are reported to have raised the players' winning bonuses ahead of the remaining seven league games.

A senior player who spoke to The Zimbabwean on condition of anonymity this week said the team management had improved their winning bonuses from $500 per game to $1,300 per match starting this weekend.

"Morale is high in camp right now. We have been promised $1,300 per game in the last seven matches of the season starting this weekend. Of course our lifestyles changed when we joined FC Platinum this season. It's different from the life we lived a season ago, but the latest incentives have raised morale in camp again. Everyone is motivated to win the league title," said the player.

FC Platinum, who face Blue Ribbon in a premiership showdown at Rufaro, are tied at the top of the league table with Motor Action. Both teams have 44 points from 23 matches while Dynamos are breathing heavily down their necks with 43 points from the same number of matches. Only seven games are left before the curtain comes down on the soccer calendar.
