Scorenigeria.com.ng has exclusively gathered that the hierarchy of FC Ifeanyiubah has instituted an extra cash motivation of N600, 000 to players of ‘The Anambra Warriors’ for every away win in the ongoing NPFL.
The amount, which is always handed over immediately after each game, is outside the players’ official match bonus, an official of the 2016 Federation Cup winners confirmed to scorenigeria.com.ng
“Welfare of our players is always our top priority”, the official said.
“And to ensure we get the best service and loyalty from them, we go the extra mile by introducing some incentives to make them happy to give their all.
“For instance, we pay the players their match winning bonuses immediately after each game. That is right inside the dressing room.
“Aside that, we give them extra N600, 000 for every away win. This is aside their normal match winning bonus”, the official added.
FC Ifeanyiubah dropped many players at the close of last season principally on disciplinary reasons.
“We have a very disciplined squad at the moment.
“What we have now are young players who are dedicated, committed and ready to work hard.
“They are players who are here for us as a club and their careers.
“Hopefully, the team will get much better as the season progresses with the level of discipline and hard work noticeable in the players”.
The Nnewi club are ninth on the NPFL table with 10 points from eight matches.
