As reported in Sports Brief, the legendary 35-year-old defender warned her teammates to use their bonuses wisely while local women's football still tries to woo Corporate South Africa for investment.

It was reported that the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture injected R5.8-million into the R9.2-million pot of gold that was promised to the team if it returned from Morocco with the trophy. This means that each member of the squad will take home approximately R577 000 from the R15-million bonus.
