Lagos - Players of Abia Warriors FC have lauded the management of the team for fulfilling its financial obligations to the players, thereby motivating them for more action.

Captain of the side, Chima Uluocha, who made the players' feelings known while addressing newsmen in Umuahia, noted that in addition to the prompt payment of their salaries, management has also ensured prompt settlement of their match bonuses and other emoluments.

Uluocha, who led by example by scoring Abia Warriors' first goal in the Premier League from the penalty spot in a 2-0 victory over visiting Kaduna United, said the chairman of the club, Chief Emeka Inyama has also motivated them by making and fulfilling his promises to them.
