Cape Town - SAFA spokesman, Dominic Chimhavi, confirmed that player bonuses have been sorted out as they look to avoid what happen during the 2013 CHAN tournament.

According to KickOff, Chimhavi admits that the players’ representatives and the South African Football Association have had “fruitful” meetings to discuss the matter.

“The issue of players’ bonuses has been thrashed out by all parties and everyone is happy,” said Chimhavi.

“We had a very cordial and fruitful meeting with the players’ representatives to discuss this matter and, at the end, all parties were happy.”

During CHAN, the Bafana rejected the opportunity to take an advancement from their bonus before the tournament kicked off two years ago.

“The discussion encompassed all tournaments, including friendly matches and the Afcon tournament.

“So there are no issues with regards to players’ bonuses,” said Chimhavi.
