Johannesburg - The SA Football Players Union is outraged by Bafana Bafana's decision to enlist Tony Irish to lead their negotiations with SAFA bosses on Soccer World Cup bonuses, according to a report on Timeslive

Irish is a director at Irish Incorporated Attorneys and is also CEO of the Cricketer's Association of South Africa.

At the weekend, the Sunday Times reported that Irish had been called on to handle Bafana's bonus negotiations, and on Monday the players' union reacted angrily to the decision.
