Barnsley win bonus against Chelsea chump change

Barnsley's FA Cup giantkillers will earn just a £1,000 bonus if they manage to defeat Chelsea today.

In stark contrast, Chelsea midfielder Michael Ballack is on an amazing £130,000 a week at Stamford Bridge. That is £18,571 per day.

Barnsley chairman Gordon Shepherd is forking out only £16,000 in total, after dodging calls to up the players' bonus contracts in the light of their remarkable Cup run.

Each player was paid only £600 before tax as a reward for their Merseyside triumph.
