AFCON 2019: Super Eagles players shun press conference over unpaid monies

25 Jun 2019, 16:05

No Super Eagles player honoured the usual pre-match press conference with coach Gernot Rohr ahead of Wednesday's second Group B fixture against Guinea.

Rohr alone attended the press conference on Tuesday as players were locked down in a meeting trying to resolve issues of bonuses and allowances.

Super Eagles vice-captain, Ahmed Musa was expected to attend Tuesday’s pre-match conference along with the team’s gaffer, Gernot Rohr, but stayed back at the hotel with the rest of his teammates to discuss the issue.

Completesports.com scooped that the players who have kept silent on the issue since they started preparations for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt are now ready to take the matter up with the Nigeria Football Federation.

It would be recalled that the Super Falcons staged a similar protest after they were knocked out of the ongoing 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France against Germany on Saturday.

The Flying Eagles also protested over the non payment of their bonuses refusing to leave their hotel following an elimination at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland.

Gernot Rohr’s men will take on Guinea on Wednesday at the Alexandria Stadium.
