@sivokovoko was certain:

"At Pirates, that 50k a month is possible, remember they should be grateful for playing for the big brand."

@KeMariri suggested:

"There are various parts to salary... other benefits would be called something else like performance... they are managing the truth."

@njivana thought:

"Maybe to highlight that he’s the breadwinner, for the argument of a lighter sentence."

@joelmonwabisi was convinced:

"It's true, the lawyer won't lie in court bro."

@SbuuMathe imagined:

"A whole superstar of the team earning just R50k??? No wonder Erasmus wanted to strangle people...I'd also be mad at Sundowns if I were him honestly. Phela this means he's somewhere around the region of R25k."

@Enn_que was confused:

"Could just be the basic salary, I’m just speculating. Doesn’t add up."
