To celebrate the maintenance of Bournemouth in the Premier League, the owner Bill Foley would have invited the players to stay in Las Vegas at the end of the season. Proposal which could be declined by some, family imperatives oblige.
In order to celebrate the imminent maintenance of Bouremouth in the Premier League, almost official three days from the end (nine points ahead of the first relegation but unfavorable goal average), the owner of Bournemouth wanted to mark the occasion. Bill Foley had thus proposed to his players to offer them a trip to Las Vegas at the end of the season as a reward, informs the Daily Mail.
The 78-year-old American, who has become a minority shareholder in FC Lorient and also owner of the Vegas Golden Knights in the NHL, would have offered this deal to his players in the locker room at Vitality Stadium, after their big victory against Leeds (4-1), a contender for maintenance, on April 30.
Players will share a seven-figure bonus
This proposal recalls the gift of Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, owners of Wrexham, who celebrated the club’s rise to League Two (D4) by inviting the entire delegation of the Welsh team to the city of sin.
However, the Cherries may have to decline the billionaire’s proposal for purely family reasons, a large of them having already booked their holidays in the short off-season granted to them. The players could, however, « consol » themselves by sharing the seven-figure bonus agreed with the club last summer, relating to the maintenance of the club in the elite of English football.
