Nations Cup 2013: Bonuses promised to Ethiopian players

Source: BBC Sport

Ethiopia's players have been promised more than $100,000 each if they win the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
The Waliya Antelopes - who are ranked 110th in the world - won the tournament in 1962 but last qualified in 1982.
The country's federation has said it will pay each player $111,000 to win the trophy and $55,000 to reach the final.

Ethiopia coach Sewnet Bishaw and his assistant would also be rewarded with "significantly higher prize money".
Ethiopian Football Federation (EFF) president Sahilu Gebremariam said the bonus offers were "intended to boost the morale of the team".

The Ethiopians qualified for the Nations Cup after going through on away goals, following their 5-5 aggregate draw with East African rivals Sudan.

A founder member of the Confederation of African Football (Caf), they contested the first Nations Cup in 1957.
They face champions Zambia in their opening Group C game on 21 January, with Burkina Faso and Nigeria their other two opponents.

Hard workers need to get compensated. This will produce and attract the best players. Good luck!

This sounds redicules. They qualify in 30 years and already thinking about the cup? how about some $$ for suriving the first round or wining one mach…lets not expect too much out of this or we will be disappointed, as usual.

You don’t go into a battle filed with that mentality. You go in to win it all and come out Victorious. thinking. Zambia came from the bottom and won the cup last year. I’m sure they went in to win it and they did. I know what you are trying to say, but there’s no way around it. Fear will only hurt this team. I’m sure they are not over confident. However, they should not fear no one! Fear of not being good enough is that held this team back for 31 years!

First we wish a success for the team.

Second, the level of incentives send sign to youth to pay high attention to football. I followed this week that runners too get incentives but that was in birr under 100,000 and not in $. If such amount of money exists for luxury activities, why foreign donation to poverty prone areas?

“There is one weakness in people for which there is no remedy, it is the universal weakness of lack of ambition” Napoleon Hill,
I don’t know why some people try to discourage us and argue why we aimed high to win it all. You don’t go to war thinking you’re gonna lose it.
“You play the game to win” coach Herman,
It is high time in Ethiopia. The new generation is very ambitious and hard working, which has been the motto started by our great leader the late PM Meles Zenawi. Always aim for the stars!

Money is the biggest motivator for any sport. Although the amount is not much for this pros the promised bonus represents more than just the money. The players are motivated and the entire nation is behind them.

Without appearing to be pessimistic, I would say a quarter final would be a tremendous achievement.
Go Waliyas!

It is not easy passing your comment over.
We are not doing what you are saying. To the contrary, some people are more realistic or cautious in their expectations than others. They didn’t mean to belittle the ambition of our NT.

Did your late earthly god say about aiming for the stars? Too bad he never made it.

Are you preparing the ground to applaud & give credit the late despot in the event of any success by the NT?

The above quote fits you like a “swiming suite” as long as you’re a small minded, small person.
Our great leader the late PM Meles Zenawi has left us an immortal legacy, which lives on through generations for a long time to come. And you cannot take it away from our youth, nor you’ve no chance of discrediting our great leader. Just go to Ethiopia if you can and see that burning desire in every single young Ethiopian to become a great one like the great Meles Zenawi, with that unconditional love of Ethiopian people.
You seem an out of touch loser like the rest FOOLS & IDIOTS of the diaspora, who live in a denial fantasy world, imagining none existing made up stories. Naming each other hero “abebe gelebaw", or zeraff, zerraff, we are invading Addis Ababa, but you find them invading the happy hour at Addis Ababa restuarant in Washington DC.
