Warri Wolves’ money woes to be addressed next week

17 April 2015, 16:13Augustine Osayande

Abuja - Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, assured players of Warri Wolves they will be paid their outstanding salaries next week.

He thus urged them to focus on Saturday’s CAF Confederation Cup against second round first leg against Congolese side, MC MK.

Uduaghan pointed out that the financial obligations for this season was delayed because the state budget was passed late.

However, during a visit to the team’s camp on Friday, he assured the team would be paid.

“I have decided to come and see you all before the match on Saturday. I was told you are having some financial challenges but I can tell you that I have fulfilled all financial obligations for last season. As for this season, the budget was passed late but we shall go and get money to pay next week,” he guaranteed.

He joked, “You did not win any trophy for me even though I promised you cars. I would have loved to have a trophy to show for what I did for you.”

Manager of the Club, Etu Moses, apologised to the governor for not winning the FA Cup in 2013 despite the promise to give them cars.

He thanked him for the visit which he believed would serve as a morale booster to the team.

Captain of the team, Azubuike Egwuekwe, told Uduaghan the side was ready for the match despite some financial challenges.

He assured the governor of victory in Saturday's match.

Meanwhile, the new state’s Football Association Chairman, the legendary Austin Okocha, accompanied the governor. – CAJ News
