Sunshine Stars duo fault suspension

11 March 2015, 13:30

Lagos - Suspended Sunshine Stars pair, Ajani Ibrahim and Dele Olorundare, have expressed shock and unhappiness with the treatment meted out to them by their club, Supersport reports.

Last week, Glo Premier League club, Sunshine Stars, suspended the two players indefinitely for what they termed "anti-club activities."

But Ajani and Olorundare have now told their own side of the story, claiming that their request for improved contracts led to their being punished.

"I'm not a bad person, I've been in Sunshine Stars for five years. They owe me 50% out of my signing-on fees for the past four years now. Also the balance of my clearance has not been paid, yet I didn't complain. Even some bonuses for last season has not been paid.

"Their payment for this season is too small for me, and I told them that. Now they said I'm suspended for that [asking for an improved pay]. I've worked with several coaches in the Nigerian league and none of them have complained about me. So I don't why I will be suspended when I've done nothing wrong to the club management, coach and even my colleagues," Ajani told supersport.com in a disappointing tone.

Olorundare on his part offered little words saying he just wants to clear his name from the suspension mess.

"I'm not a troublesome person, and I'm always committed to my job but I don't think there's anything wrong if a worker makes a demand to his employers. I've served this club [Sunshine Stars] with honesty and I feel unhappy that I'm suspended right now," Olorundare lamented to supersport.com.
