Śląsk Wrocław Players’ Wages Docked After Embarrassing Defeat

Śląsk Wrocław’s first team footballers have had their wages docked following a horror 3-0 home defeat against ten-men Wisła Płock.

The club will use the savings to offer fans who attended the Wisła Płock match the chance to buy tickets for the Lechia Gdańsk game on December 1st for 1zł. Season ticket holders can also bring an extra person with them to the same fixture for just 1zł.

Due to the result and style of the defeat of Śląsk Wrocław in the match against Wisła Płock, the club’s management have decided to reduce the November salary of the first team players of WKS Śląsk Wrocław. The penalty was accepted by the team.

As a result of the board’s decision, supporters who bought a ticket for the match with Wisla Płock can buy a ticket for the next Śląsk Wrocław home match (against Lechia Gdańsk) for 1zł in all four stands. Season ticket holders will also be able to buy a ticket for an accompanying person for 1zł.

The goal for the season, set for the team, is promotion to the championship group of the Lotto Ekstraklasa. The club’s management board and sports director, after consultation with the training staff, have decided to review the possibility of the playing staff completing this task after the 20th round of the competition, when the winter break commences.

During the aforementioned encounter against Wisła Plock, Śląsk found themselves a man up after 28 minutes thanks to a Adam Dźwigała red-card. However, despite having an extra player WKS were soundly defeated 3-0.

The defeat came just as Śląsk appeared to have put their patchy form behind them; they had won their previous two fixtures 5-0 and 3-0 respectively.

Śląsk currently lie in 11th position, 4 points off from the coveted 8th place that would see the team qualify for the ‘championship group’ in the final fixtures of the season.

Given Śląsk’s inconsistent form this season, you certainly wouldn’t bet your house on them finishing in the top eight.

Rumours cited in the local press state that the coach and his assistants will likely be fired if WKS are not in the top 8 come the winter break. That would presumably cost the club (and the taxpayer) a significant sum in compensation payouts.
