The Super Eagle player representative boycotted the mandatory pre-match press conference held at the Alexandria Stadium on Tuesday morning ahead of their second group match at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations against Guinea.
The Super Eagles players were having an in-house meeting as the press conference was ongoing.
A verifiable source has confirmed that the reason why the players are having a meeting and one player did not show up at the press conference is because funds supposed to be credited to their accounts on Monday is being delayed by the Nigerian Federation.
It has been suggested that the money has been approved but the players have not received the payments due to bank issues.
The players are angry and disappointed with the Federation, and that’s why a nominated player refused to come for the press conference.
The three-time African champions are scheduled to train at the Arab Academy for Science, Technology & Maritime Transport on Tuesday afternoon, starting from 1630 hours.
