Bafana in bonus row
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.
"We have heard that Bafana players have approached Irish and we cannot allow that," said Hareipha Marumo, a former Platinum Stars player and the president of union.
"Our union is supposed to be representing the players. But we will sit
down with those leading the players to discuss this situation."
