Possible Clauses In Khune’s Contracts

Footballers’ contracts are sometimes lucrative, often complex and occasionally bizarre, and sometimes they can cause a stink between them and their club’s management – something which Itumeleng Khune and Bobby Motaung know well. 

The Chiefs CEO recently revealed that Khune’s delay in extending his stay with the Glamour Boys is down to various clauses in his contract.

As a result, I will take a look at the various clauses one may see if they had to look at Khune’s proposed new deal… 

Salary
This one is self-explanatory. Like every normal person wants a raise every year, so does every player. However, Chiefs may want to keep him on the same pay and rather give him performance-based bonuses which will bump up his earnings. Other clauses regarding salary could include signing-on fees, loyalty fees, objectives based on games and sub-agreements for image rights.

Bonuses
There is a smorgasbord of bonuses players can walk away with come the end of the season, and when you play for a big team like Chiefs, you are guaranteed a healthy sum of money. In Khune’s case, bonuses for clean sheets can bring the same reward, as well as the club’s ranking on the league table. 

Disputes
This boils down to behaviour on and off the field. If Khune has somehow fallen out with a teammate or someone at management level, this could result in paying some heavy fines. The different types of penalties can also result in him not wanting to extend with a club.

Other Clauses
This is the weird and wonderful nature of contracts… Some clauses can be built around a buy-out clause, about possibly banning Khune from doing certain off the field activities or anything you can think of. 

Image rights are also possible clauses that Chiefs may have put in his contract, which could upset the player. When last did you see Khune in a Vaseline advert? Another possibility is his use of Twitter and Instagram; the club may not be keen on him posting certain things. Trust me, this is a strong possibility.

Khosi fans, what clauses do you think are blocking Khune from signing his contract extension or is it something else?
