Highlanders players on strike over unpaid winning bonuses5 years ago
Highlanders players refused to train for two days over unpaid winning bonuses for four games against Shabanie Mine, Chicken Inn, Triangle United and Black Rhinos.
Winning bonuses for matches are pegged at $170 per player, meaning each is owed $680. Highlanders needs a total of $12 240 to clear the players’ outstanding winning bonuses. This figure does not include allowances for the technical staff, some of whom are reported to have gone for months without pay. Bosso’s technical team was forced to abandon training at Barbourfields Stadium’s outside grounds yesterday after the players refused to take to the field despite having changed into their training kit.
