Protest and disagreement over money appears to have become a recurring decimal in the relationship between the national teams and the Amaju Pinnick led Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

Just few days after Super Falcons refused to leave their hotel in France insisting on getting their allowances before checking out, Super Eagles currently campaigning at the Nations cup in Egypt have joined the band wagon.

The Eagles who are billed to take on Guinea in their second group match on

Wednesday flagged off massive protest on Tuesday, shunning training and boycotting press briefing ahead of tomorrow’s match.

Information emanating from the team’s camp indicates that the players were not ready to listen to the sugar coated promises often given by Glass House officials insisting on pay before service.

Some of the players Sportinglife gathered described the Glass House as specialists in promise and fail, adding that in as much as it is good to be patriotic a labourer still deserves his wages.

They accused the officials of taking their welfare with levity just because they listen to their sweet nothings while resisting the temptation to portray the country in a bad light. (The Nation)
