Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh has raised alarm over the welfare of his players ahead of this afternoon’s CHAN Group C against Guinea, warning his team may “break down” as they are yet to be paid bonuses in Rwanda.
He said: “My players are working under extreme duress, it’s like driving a car with an empty tank,I won’t go into details. Let’s just hope we don’t break down.”
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have been hit by a serious cash crunch, which has meant they have not been able to meet up some of their financial obligations.
Nigeria need a point from today’s final group game against Guinea to qualify them for the quarterfinals against either Mali or Zambia.
