Sundowns will lock horns with Golden Arrows in the quarter-finals of the MTN8 competition, with Mosimane revealing that the financial side of things should serve as a good motivation for the team to go all out and win the competition.

“It is a good competition for the players financially, because you play four games and you win R8 million and then when you win the league it is 26 more games, then it is R2 million difference,” Mosimane said at the MTN8 media open day.

“I am not a financial guy but with my limited knowledge, I think maybe the top eight is the easy one to win for money. I think the boys need it and once they win it our generous president he gives them all the money. I hope they don’t say, ah lets win this one it’s four games and two million rand less than the 10 million rand, why should we go fight for 30 games? So we love the MTN8, we love it, why not,” he added.

Sundowns will be competing in all competitions, both domestically and in Africa, with the biggest prize money is that of winning the CAF Champions League campaign 

Prize money for all competitions:

MTN8 = R8 million

Nedbank Cup = R7 million

Telkom Knockout Cup = R4 million

Absa Premiership title = R10 million

CAF Champions League = $2.5 million (±R34.65 million)

“For us it is not about money or maybe for me personally it is not about money it is about winning the titles and making the team know that they have to lift the trophy, I like to see (it), it is one thing I love is seeing the boys lift the trophy, I am always there next to them. For me, I love that and it is the culture,” Mosimane concluded.

Pitso is now becoming too big for his boots. Now his supporter was going to give him a gift. Really Pitso? What if it eas not a gift but he was attacking you. Now you involve Chiefs. Stop mixing issues here my man. Earn your monies and leave other teams. Next time when you are attacked and the securities do not protect you just say you got your "present". Who doesn't want you? Resign if if feel Sundowns are tired of you.

I am against this type of incentive as it breeds greediness.

@Dangerous when provoked during the time when we took a decision to support Sundowns. We were having no idea of that "one day Baba Motsepe will will come and protect us". but love by nature lead us from the beginning. Stop jealous problem your teams fail to match Dawana status.

We all have our views and the freedom of speech. In my view clubs should be run as Companies not as charity of some sort. They should be structured as such with management and players as employees getting a salary. It was like that all over before the teams were owned by billionnaires whose purpose is to save tax. But there are clubs overseas who do not run clubs in this fashion. This to me kills soccer the only entertaiment available to the ebony skinned. This practice creates greediness and rough tackles and all that as players would like to win by hook or crook. It is run better if there is a salary and some incentives but not to say the winnings are them. The most clubs need money to develope as an entity and pay workers accordingly. I am talking from experience as i have seen some players and coaches behave badly because they want to win at all cost, even using illegal tactics. Let clubs be companies and pay players like workers and give them incentives.
