PSL bottom-dwellers Platinum Stars have offered incentives to their players in a bid to preserve their Absa Premiership status for next season.
Dikwena are already facing relegation as they are currently rooted at the foot of the PSL table with 17 points and only have six games left to save themselves from campaigning in the National First Division next season.
Head coach Roger de has explained the motivation behind giving players R10 000 for winning a match and R 5000 for a draw.
Speaking to the Sowetan, de Sa said, “I’m a believer that players will play for a bonus, because it adds to their lifestyle.
“So look, the club didn’t have a bonus structure before and at least now there is something.
“We have to try anything, just reward them for good performances and results.
“It’s exactly what it is, if you do well you get a bonus and if you don’t do well, you don’t get a bonus.
“If you are in the team or not, you [still] get your salary. I think you want to create a bit of competition and an incentive.
“If you are not in the team, you stay at home and party all weekend. If you are in the team you go away and play, but at least now if you go and play, you come back with something,” he concluded.
Dikwena lock horns against Baroka FC at home when the PSL action resumes on Tuesday, April 3, and provides their players with an opportunity to register their first win since the introduction of the incentive structure.
