Super Eagles get cash boost from LMC

19 January 2016, 16:43Israel Ojoko

Kigali - Super Eagles got an instant reward from the Chairman of the League Management Company (LMC) Shehu Dikko after defeating Niger 4-1 in their first fixture at the ongoing African Nations Championship in Kigali on Monday.

Dikko was said to have presented the cash gift of $10,000 to the victorious Super Eagles on behalf of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) in Kigali, Rwanda.

It would be recalled that players of FC Taraba, among other clubs, are still being owed backlog of salaries and allowances, flaunting LMC’s rules on players’ wages, with no notable sanction from the body.

“The LMC, club owners and all the stakeholders of the league appreciate your excellent display, we are proud of the team. You guys have been good ambassadors of the league and I have been mandated to present this cash as reward for your hard work,” Dikko said while presenting the cash gift to the 23 players who were all selected from Nigeria Premier League clubs.

Most of the 23 players are being owed by their various clubs in Nigeria, where they play regular football.

The Super Eagles will face Tunisia on Friday while Guinea and Niger Republic will also play in continuation of the Group C contest to reach the next round of the tournament.
