Super Falcons protest unpaid allowances in France

Super Falcons on Sunday staged a sit-in protest at their hotel in France until all of their outstanding bonuses were paid.

The team crashed out of the ongoing the Women’s World Cup on Saturday after Germany thrashed them 3-0.

According to ESPN, the players revealed that they were owed bonuses from two games, against Gambia and Senegal, from as far back as two years ago, amounting to two million naira but they were only paid half of the amount owed. They also said they were owed five days of daily allowance while at the World Cup.

“They paid us on million (naira) and said that is all. We want them to pay the balance,” one player told ESPN. “Part of that money is from two years ago, the other is from three years ago. And they are also owing us five days’ daily allowance here in France.

Meanwhile, Colin Udoh, former Super Eagles media aide on his verified Twitter handle, has revealed that the team has finally agreed to leave their hotel.

He tweeted, “Players agreed to leave (the) hotel on Saturday after missing earlier scheduled transportation. Will now arrive home on Monday.”
