Stars World Cup Bonuses - Government, FA, Players Meet


A tripartite meeting involving World Cup-bound players of the Black Stars, the FA and the government is scheduled to commence soon for an agreement on a new remuneration package for the team before the kick-off of the mundial in South Africa from June 11-July 11.

The players are expected to present the new proposal to management of the Black Stars during their training tour of France between May 24-29, hoping that before the team’s final warm-up match against Latvia in the United Kingdom on June 5, it would have been ratified by the other two skakeholders.

 

Sources close to both the players and the FA were reluctant to disclose to the Graphic Sports what each intends to put on the table for discussion, but the players, some of whom could be playing their last World Cup before quitting the game, have hinted “it would be a good demand.”

 

Skipper Stephen Appiah and his deputy, John Mensah, are expected to lead the players’ side of the discussions to either maintain the $10,000 winning bonus they received at the preliminary stage at the Germany 2006 competition, increase or reduce it.

 

But as has been the trend, the players who took $10,000 each per match during the qualifiers towards the South African tournament are certain to call for an increase.

 

At the time the players agreed to the $10,000 at the Germany tournament, their bonus during the qualifiers was $8,000, and it would be strange if they agree for it to be downsized.

 

Sources close to the Graphic Sports say government has not come up with any figure yet, but it’s ready to dialogue with the players to agree on realistic figures, ensuring that morale among the players is not lowered, while making sure that the economy does not suffer.

 

Meanwhile, FA Vice President, Fred Pappoe, has told the Graphic Sports that an advance party was expected to leave for Paris on May 22, to be joined by the players, including Kelvin Prince Boateng by May 24, for their first training session to commence.

 

The Stars, before they leave France for Holland on May 30 for an international friendly against the Dutch national side in Rotterdam, would have played some low profile matches or a possible one big international friendly in France.

 

According to the team’s itinerary, the Black Stars will depart Holland for the United Kingdom on June 2 to engage Latvia in a final trial match on June 5 and leave finally for South Africa via Germany on June 6 and arrive on June 7.
