In our previous article, we mentioned that Monnapule Saleng is currently one of the lowest paid players at Orlando Pirates.
In this article, we will now take a look at the main reasons why the in-form winger is currently one of the lowest paid players at the Buccaneers.
It was reported that he takes home about R70 000 per month, which is way low when compared to other players salaries at the Buccaneers.
The current top earning player is Deon Hotto, who takes home about R500 000 per month.
Now, here are some of the reasons we believe might have affected the contract of Monnapule Saleng at the Buccaneers.
Why Monnapule Saleng Is One Of The Lowest Paid Players At Orlando Pirates
1. When Monnapule Saleng joined Orlando Pirates, he was signed from Free State Stars. The club is currently participating in the 2nd division, Motsepe Foundation Championship.
2. It is highly unlikely to sign a huge contract with a big club like Orlando Pirates while you were playing for a club from a lower division.
3. Monnapule Saleng was only 23 years old when he signed a contract with Orlando Pirates.
4. To be quite honest, almost no one knew about Monnapule Saleng before he returned from loan at Swallows FC this season.
At the end of this season, if the Buccaneers do not consider selling him to a club in Europe, Monnapule Saleng will surely sign a new contract with Orlando Pirates, which will be an improved contract.
The midfielder has been tipped by many people to win the PSL Player Of The Season this year.
