AFCON 2019: Super Eagles Protest Over Unpaid Bonuses by Mrsoundoro(m): 2:32pm On Jun 25
Super Eagles players boycotted Tuesday’s pre-match conference and could boycott Tuesday evening’s training.

Nigeria’s preparation for Wednesday’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) tie with Guinea suffered a setback as a bonus row took centre stage.

The Super Eagles laboured to a hard-fought win over Burundi in their first game and could earn a ticket to the Round of 16 should they triumph over the National Elephants in Alexandria.

However, Gernot Rohr’s men went on to complain about their unpaid bills.

Ahmed Musa failed to show up for Tuesday’s pre-match conference ahead of the Guinea match, but the Al-Nassr player preferred to stay back with his colleagues for a ‘crucial’ player’s meeting at the Helnan Palestine Hotel.

"The player showed solidarity and had to stay back for an important meeting,” said coach Rohr when quizzed by the media.

Unpaid bonuses are not new in Nigerian football. First, it was the Nigeria U20 team who embarked on a sit-in protest and refused to leave Poland after their elimination from the Fifa U20 World Cup in Russia.

Recently, the Nigeria women’s senior national team, which was kicked out of the Women’s World Cup in France, declined to leave their hotel until all outstanding bonuses were paid – a claim the NFF denied, insisting Thomas Dennerby’s ladies were not owed.

Hmmm! Diswan na season of protestations from Nigerian national football teams ooh...From the useless crashing U20 eagles to the wingless falcon na it is the turn of the Super chickens which we don't even know if they can fly..

One was thinking by now we should have been done with this national embarrassment until I remembered that at the very pinnacle of the Nigerian state uphill in Abuja lies an even bigger embarrassment.
