*Players to expose all in press conference
*Pay us our US$23,650 (about N11.5 million) and we go
“Bros, where una go bring this man wey dem say him name na Amaju come from?” you won’t believe it, he snubbed us in Cameroon and when we won the trophy, he was pretending before the cameras that we are the best of pals with him. Don’t you know many of us turned cold shoulders on him?
That was the informed comment of one of the old players in the team. All we know is that our patience is thinning out. We may be forced to call a press briefing on Friday (today) to tell the nation all that we know. They have already started telling us directly to our faces that we shall never smell the national team again. Agreed, each player is entitled to US$23,650 (about N11.5 million), tell them to pay and we sign the divorce letter. QED.
Pinnick has ordered his boot lickers to compile the names of we the protest leaders to be blacklisted. Very soon, he will go on the pitch by himself. Since his coming to office, he has been the greatest disservice to women football. This is my 11th year in the senior national team, so I should be able to tell.
The much experienced first-team Falcons player said we will tell the public the whole lies and sordid experiences we passed through in the hands of the callous football house.
“If we are their daughters would we be treated like this? We do not hope to engage in street protest carrying placards to tell our sordid stories, I think we are decent persons rather we intend to engage the media in a press conference to open up to the world.
“The press conference is hopefully going to hold latest on Friday except the NFF steps in quickly to meet our demands. Our demands are quite simple – NFF should pay us our money inclusive of match bonuses and other entitlements. It should cover the bonuses for the qualifying stage to the AWCON final in Cameroon.
“We are not too keen on the so-called state reception which to us is merely a privilege we want our bonuses paid which is strictly a right. We have actually worked for the money and we need it urgently to take care of ourselves as well as dependents.
