NO MORE MONEY FOR NT PLAYERS
The Macedonian Football Federation will no longer pay each national team player 5,000 Euros for a win and 3,000 Euros for a draw. Lesson learned after the last WC qualification fiasco where the team finished in its always reserved 4th spot.
According to FFM's spokesman, the federation had 'waisted' 300,000 Euros in payments during the last qualification campaign only to see the team produce no viable results once again.
"4th place is simply not accebtable, not when the federation has been so financially generous to our players" says a source in the FFM.
The new system soon to be accepted will award the national team only when finishing second, possibly third in the group.
