Last Update: 28/06/2019
IPOH, June 28 (Bernama) -- The Perak football squad have been promised extra bonuses if they manage to step into the FA Cup final by beating Pahang tomorrow and subsequently bring home the trophy.
Perak Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu, who is also Perak Football Association (Pafa) president said the said incentives were to boost the spirits of ‘The Bos Gaurus' squad in an effort to secure at least a 2-0 victory to qualify for the finals.
"I have told the players that I will give a bonus to them and the officials if they enter the final and will give another bonus if they bring home the trophy," he told reporters after visiting the Perak squad at the Perak Stadium here today.
Ahmad Faizal also reminded the players to focus on getting the trophy rather than thinking about the bonus, as he said even though the amount had not been set yet, it was sure to make them happy.
"I believe Perak will put up a great fight in the return leg, even though Pahang come here with high spirits as they have a two-goal advantage.
In the first leg of the semi-finals at the Darul Makmur Stadium in Kuantan on Sunday (June 23), Perak lost 1-3 to the Tok Gajah squad.
