Unless every outstanding allowances are paid we will not leave for the airport=u20 team affirms
The Flying Eagles,Nigeria’s U20 team, have refused to evacuate their hotel in Poland over the refusal to pay their allowances by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
This came a day after the Nigerian side was eliminated out of the Fifa U20 World Cup after a 2-1 defeat to West African rivals Senegal.
Although, the players were expected to leave the hotel by 3am on Tuesday, they did not budge, an insider told TheCable.
It is understood that a change in flight time was made for the team by the world football ruling body to 12pm, but the players are still adamant.
The players are reportedly insisting that they must be paid their winnings, draw bonuses and allowances before leaving for the airport.
Pleas made by Nigeria’s football officials including Pinnick Amaju, NFF president, were not successful.
Fifa’s deadline for eliminated teams to vacate their hotels has since expired, meaning that the team could be thrown out soon.
It was also heard that Polish police have already beefed up security in the event if it becomes necessary to eject the Nigerian team
