Afcon 2019: Super Eagles Shun Press Conference to Protest Unpaid Bonuses Ahead of Guinea Clash
Nigeria’s preparation for Wednesday’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) tie with Guinea suffered a setback as a bonus row took centre stage.
Vice-captain of the team, Ahmed Musa was expected to attend Tuesday’s pre-match conference along with the team’s gaffer, Gernot Rohr, but stayed back at the hotel with the rest of his teammates to discuss the issue.
“The player showed solidarity and had to stay back for an important meeting,” said coach Rohr when quizzed by the media.
Gernot Rohr’s men will take on Guinea on Wednesday at the Alexandria Stadium.
The three-time African champions top Group B with three points.
