West Ham player Antonio has written in his contract that he will be awarded a Quarter of a Million Pounds (£250,000) bonus if he scores ten goals this season.Prior to his last game he had scored nine goals but in his last game West Ham were awarded a penalty which would normally be taken by Mark Noble but he stepped aside in order for Antonio to score his tenth goal which he duly did. I could understand West Ham putting the clause in his contract if he was the goalkeeper or centreback but a forward? I could understand it better if Antonio played for Real Madrid, Barca or even Man Utd but West Ham?
The football world has gone mad!

To promise a forward player that much when ten goals in a season is not unusual seems to me to be ridiculous. Do they give their Goalie £250k if he makes ten saves in a season?

I have just looked up "how many players have scored 10 goals or more this season" the answer is 20.

Properly the best deal the hammers have made this season.
His form and goals have kept them in the premier league.
Without him and his goals they would have lost a fortune.
Ozil has similar deal where if he doesn't play in ten games he still gets £35000 a week.
“ Arsenal come streaming forward now in surely what will be their last attack. A good ball by Dixon, finding Smith, for Thomas, charging through the midfield. Thomas, it's up for grabs now! Thomas! ”
