The Dakar Jaraaf will pocket at least 325,000 dollars, or 177 million FCFA, informs the newspaper L’Observateur. This, after his historic feat, yesterday, at the Lat Dior stadium in Thiès, facing the Etoile Sportive du Sahel.
A nice jackpot added to the 275,000 Dollars (149 million FCFA), the qualification bonus paid by the African Football Confederation to the 16 teams qualified for the group stage, for a total of 600,000 Dollars (327 million FCFA) already received, writes the Observer.
This large financial sum will allow Cheikh Seck’s team to replenish its funds and better prepare for the rest of the competition. next week, the Medina club, leader of group C, travels to Tunisia to face CS Sfaxien (2nd, 9pts) on behalf of the 6th and last day counting for the first place of this group C.
If the most important is already acquired for this Medinian team (1st, 10pts), they will gain even more by going as far as possible in the competition whose winner will receive 1.25 million dollars or 676.4 million FCFA. Taking into account the many financial advantages with each step taken, the rewards are well worth the effort.
