What Foreign Players Can Earn In The PSL  

The 15-page report from FIFA on the Kaizer Chiefs transfer ban also lifted the lid on what foreign players can – potentially, earn in the Premier Soccer League.

In detailing the decision which led to the world football governing body handing Amakhosi a two-window restriction on signing players as punishment for one of their 2018 recruits, FIFA revealed that Andriamirado 'Dax' Andrianarimanana went from rags to riches following his move to Naturena nearly two years ago.

The player went from earning R6000 at his former club Fosa Juniors in Madagascar’s amateur ranks to an upward of R60 000 a month at Chiefs, including R960 000 spread over the duration of his stay at the club for “image and autograph rights”.

It’s a glimpse into what an international player’s salary package would look like after a move to the PSL, although it depends on negotiations between the player, the club and agent involved in helping get the deal over the line.

Due to his status as an amateur, 'Dax', who has since joined Black Leopards, might have come at a relatively cheaper price, though for him his earnings went up by a substantial amount and he won’t be complaining.

The Siya crew understands that his counterparts earn significantly more.  

It’s likely then that his teammates Samir Nurkovic and Lazarous Kambole are on higher packages because they were already playing at a higher level than he was in Madagascar. Nonetheless… it is perhaps a bench mark for what could even be considered a minimum salary for foreign players with limited PSL experience. 

Many of the international players in the league are on double the package – others having worked their way up the salary bracket with time.
