Former Super Falcons coach Eucharia Uche cries out after going three years without pay



The former international has expressed her disappointment over her inability to access her salary for the last three years with the Owerri outfit
Head coach of Heartland Queens, Eucharia Uche, says she is yet to receive any salary since she was appointed three years ago by the Imo state government.
Uche was the first woman to win the African Women's Cup of Nations as a player and coach in 2010, with Nigeria and later led the Super Falcons to the 2011 Women's World Cup in Germany.
She joined the Nigeria Women's Premier League (NWPL) outfit in 2017 from now-defunct COD United Ladies, following the disbandment of the Lagos based women's team.
Despite being relegated in 2018, the 46-year-old helped the Owerri outfit back to the top flight a year later but is now owed a backlog of salary for up to 36 months to the tune of six million naira.
The former Super Falcons coach says she has not received a dime from her employers since her engagement in 2017, while narrating her ordeal.
"I was contracted by governor Rochas Okorocha's administration through then commissioner in 2017 to help build Heartland Queens," Uche told Goal.
"All through Okorocha's time from 2017 to 2019 he never paid me nor anybody. They kept promising, making approvals without releasing the money.
