Super Eagles stage protest over unpaid wages, bonuses as one of the players abandons press conference duty

The Super Eagles of Nigeria on Tuesday, June 25 staged a protest over unpaid wages and bonuses which made one of the players abandon his media duties ahead of their second game against Guinea at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

A player was expected to accompany Gernot Rohr to face the media at a press conference before the game against Guinea but only the Super Eagles coach showed up.

There was confusion over the reason why the unknown player was absent with the CAF media officer present announcing that the player was ill while Rohr said the player had to stay back at the hotel for a meeting.
