The PSL is where its at as far as African football is concerned as we've seen players flocking from all corners of the league. Many are attracted by the fact that it is very lucrative and the big teams pay well which is enticing. Mamelodi Sundowns has solidified their spot as the spenders, however Kaizer Chiefs players are among the highest paid which makes a huge difference. The Motsepe family doesn't spare any expense when it comes to getting the best of the best.
Mamelodi Sundowns made reinforcements at the beginning of the season as usual and one of them was a player who wasn't previously known to South African football. Keagan Dolly currently holds the spot as the highest paid player in the DStv Premiership with Khama Billiat and Samir Nurkovic closely behind him. This definitely paints a good picture of where the PSL is headed in terms of the business side.
According to reports, Pavol Safranko is now the highest paid player at Mamelodi Sundowns and the second highest in the PSL just behind Keagan Dolly. He leaped past Khama Billiat and Samir Nurkovic. Safranko currently earns R1 million monthly. His move from Slovakia to South Africa was definitely worth it and he hasn't taken much time to settle.
This will set the standard for teams in the future as players will want to move closer to this pay rate. There are players who are performing below their wage and this is something that will influence contract negotiations. Pavol Safranko has contributed positively to the club since arriving and he looks set to score more goals for Mamelodi Sundowns.
He is currently 27 years old and looks set to continue for seasons to come as he is only getting started. Mamelodi Sundowns is spoiled for choice when it comes to strikers with players like Peter Shalulile and Erasmus among others. This makes puts pressure on the player to perform as there's depth and it is not easy to break into the starting line up.
