FA deny 400k World Cup bonus plans.

FA deny 400k World Cup bonus plans.
By Soccernet staff.


The Football Association have denied reports that they are negotiating a deal which would earn England players a World Cup bonus of 400,000 each if the Three Lions triumph in South Africa next year.

Saturday's newspapers suggested the FA are earmarking 5.5 million to be split between the 23-man squad should England win the World Cup for the first time since 1966.

That would see each member collect a tidy sum, although in some cases it is not even a month's wages for their clubs.

It could also be argued the FA would gain far more through increased exposure and the sponsorship that would follow from having the world's number one team.

However, it seems the speculation is premature, with the FA claiming discussions have yet to take place over the bonus structure.

"We are surprised by today's stories, as the fact is that to date there have not been any meetings, discussions or indication given regarding any payments of World Cup bonuses," said FA director of communications Adrian Bevington.

The reason why I am posting this is, our 2006 WC players have a court date with the TTFF on October 16th.

He is not going back to the Express.
The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
