Johannesburg - A winners cheque of R50 million would be on offer should Orlando Pirates win the Caf Champions League trophy and go on to lift the Fifa Club World Cup, for which they would automatically qualify if they win the Champions League.

The substantial prize money for the seven teams competing in the club competition, went right down the line, with the runners-up receiving R40-million; the third-placed team R25-million; the fourth-placed side R20-million and even the team finishing fifth netting R15-million.

"How will I feel if Pirates go all the way and add another honour to the CAF Champions League title won in 1995? I'll just have to wait and see."
