On Saturday at Wembley (from 5:45 p.m. on our site), Chelsea players will aim to smash Liverpool’s four-time dream. Opposed to the Reds in the final of the Emirates FA Cup, the Blues want to wash away the affront of the previous edition, when they were defeated by Leicester by Brendan Rodgers. The motivation of the troops of Thomas Tuchel is found tenfold, because they will receive in case of success 1 million pounds sterling (1.2 M€) in bonuses. the Sportsmail explains that Chelsea players could have, in the event of a perfect season, obtained up to 15 million euros in performance bonuses.
An amount shared in proportion to the workforce, linked to the number of matches played. The English media specifies that Chelsea’s bounty program is one of the most lucrative in the Premier League. The players would have received the astronomical sum of 10 million pounds, in the event of victory in the Champions League this year. But the Londoners were knocked out at the quarter-final stage by Real Madrid. The Chelsea stars had also negotiated a £4million payout if they win the Premier League this season, but the title race has fallen through.
