    Why should you offer N100k to Glo top scorer? That's why these players are bn selfish and will never grow. What abt the player that assists or works for goal? He gets nothing right? So if a player is in  better position to  scoore and I've got the same number of goals as him, and knowing fully well that if I pass him the ball he will score and takes the 100k. Hmm! I rather try my luck too.
