Ever feel that the man-of-the-match might want a bit more that the usual cash bonus of bottle of champagne want more for their performances?
Well Eredivise side NEC Nijmegen apparently do, so they have created an incentive in an effort to bring the best out of their players by rewarding them with a car wash.
But not just any car wash. It is one that is carried out by three bikini-clad blondes that have been employed by the Dutch club to provide the award winner with the special service, in the hope that the Nijmegen squad will up their performances to gain the reward.
The first recipient of the new scheme was former Liverpool youth player Victor Palsson, and he seemed more that pleased with the result.
He wrote on his official Twitter account: “Thanks @NEC_Nijmegen for this MOTM prize after the game vs. Osasuna. The car has never been cleaner.”
The 22-year-old was awarded the man-of-the-match during the side’s pre-season friendly with Spanish side Osasuna, which finished 1-1 at their home ground Goffertstadion.
NEC will be hoping that the new employees improve the on-field performances from the players, after the finished in 15th place last season – escaping the relegation play-offs by just four points.
