NUFC Player Bonuses

Newcastle are on course for a massive bonus if they finish the season in the Premier League’s top ten.

Magpies director of football Joe Kinnear has revealed that a delegation of players led by centre-half Fabricio Coloccini agreed to terms in the summer that would see them rewarded only if they finish in the top half of the table.

It means the Toon Army must perform better than last term when they finished 12th after flirting with relegation but successive wins against Chelsea, Tottenham and Norwich have seen them climb to eighth place, just two points off Manchester City in fourth.

Kinnear maintains the agreement shows the club is united from owner Mike Ashley down and wrote in his programme notes before the victory over the Canaries: ‘While supporters see the togetherness on the pitch, they rarely see the great unity that exists in all other areas of the club.

‘I want to emphasise this by making reference to the bonus scheme agreed at the beginning of the season, which for this season will only pay out if the team finishes in tenth place or higher.

‘Everyone who works here has bought into this concept. Me, the football staff including the manager, the directors and all the eligible administrative staff employed at Newcastle United – we are together.

‘What has been especially pleasing is the willingness of the players to sign up to the same scheme as our employees. Last season, our players would have received a bonus for a 12th-place finish or higher.

‘You might think that after the season we had last year, there may have been some reluctance to raising the bar this season, but the exact opposite is true.

‘A group, led by captain Fabricio Coloccini and other senior players on behalf of the whole squad, agreed unanimously to a tougher target.

‘For that, I want to sincerely thank them. I am delighted with their positive mindset and belief in their ability as a squad.’

Fuck off Kinnear never said all that. For a start I doubt he knows words such as 'delegation'.
