Warri Wolves Introduces New Contract Regime for Players

Warri Wolves Football Club

LAGOS NOVEMBER 8TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Warri Wolves Football Club has abolished sign-on-fees for its players with effect from 2013/2014 season.
Sign-on fees is a lump sum guaranteed a player when joining a team, and according to the Media Manager of the Club, Etu Moses, even though the club has paid that of the last season hundred percent, the new management has decided to abolish it and instead introduce performing contract.

According to Etu, the introduction of performing contract for the players will make them to sit up and compete favourably for shirts.
Etu disclosed that players will now earn money based on their performances unlike the previous years when players who did not play a single match go home with millions of Naira.
“As part of effort to obtain maximum performance from the players, we have decided to abolish sign-on-fees and instead, what we have now is called performing contract.
This to us will make those of them who are lazy to sit up. If you know that playing more matches will guarantee you more money, you will have to work hard but if you think you are there to make the numbers, you will go home empty handed.
“Could you believe that some players did not play more than three matches last season and they are comfortable? Do you know that some of them don’t know why they are in the Club? The era of Father Christmas is gone and anybody who wants money will; have to work for it,” Etu said in a statement made available to PREMIUM TIMES
Etu also disclosed that the club has successfully paid the salaries of the players, match bonuses and sign on fees for last season.
“I am happy to tell you that we have paid up to date the salaries, match bonuses and sign on fees and I am sure we are the only Club who has done that.
“Kudos should therefore go to the Government of Delta State and the Executive Chairman of the Sports Commission, Pinnick Amaju who takes players welfare seriously.
“All the players went home happily and we hope to continue on that note next season,” he concluded.
Warri Wolves finished 5th on the log last term and also emerged as runners-up in the 2013 Federation Cup; a situation that has handed the team a ticket to represent Nigeria in the CAF Confederations Cup next season.
