Royal Eagles players are smiling all the way to the bank after beating AmaZulu 2-1 in a KwaZulu-Natal derby at Princess Magogo Stadium over the weekend.
Eagles recored their first victory in the National First Division on Saturday after starting the season on a poor note, and the chairman has financially rewarded them.
Last season Eagles players received R10 000 each per win, although whether those bonuses have increased has not been revealed.
According a source close to the club, the players also joined the club co-owners Shauwn and S'bu Mpisane at their wedding anniversary after the win against Usuthu.
Eagles general manager Richard Makhoba confirms the team joined the Mpisane’s celebrations in Durban.
“Yes, it’s true the players joined to celebrate the anniversary of Mr and Mrs Mpisane but they didn’t stay long,” Makhoba tells KickOff.com.
“We look after our players very well and always reward excellence. If you want results, you can’t keep unhappy players, you need to reward players for good performances,” he adds.
Makhoba also hailed new captain Dominic Isaacs and Khethokwakhe Masuku for great individual performances against AmaZulu.
“Isaacs was given the responsibility to captain the team on Saturday. We showed maturity and youngsters will learn a lot from his leadership and experience in the game.
“As for Masuku, many people are still to be surprised. He had one of his best games on Saturday. The boy is sound upstairs [in his head] and carries himself very well both on and off the field,” he adds.
