Lebese: It’s Not About The Money!

Kaizer Chiefs midfielder, George Lebese, insists that winning the MTN8 is not about the money but about the team and the honour of winning a trophy.

Chiefs will battle it out with Ajax Cape Town for the first major piece of silverware in the 2015/16 campaign when they lock horns in the final of the MTN8 on Saturday.

The winner of the trophy will walk away with a cool R8 million in prize money, while the runners-up will only walk away with R800 000, the same amount as all the other teams that have already been knocked out of the competition.

'Milkshake' has insisted that the honour that is associated with winning the trophy is much greater than the monetary award.

“It's not about the money! It's about the team and the honour of winning the trophy. As a player, I would be happy to win an individual prize, but I put Chiefs first.”

“If we win the MTN8 and I don't win any individual prize, I will still be happy,” Lebese told Soccer Laduma.

The in-form Amakhosi winger currently leads the scorers' chart with three goals in the MTN8.
