Unpaid salaries: FC IfeanyiUbah players beg LMC

FC IfeanyiUbah

Players of Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, FC IfeanyiUbah, have urged the League Management Company (LMC) to intervene over their unpaid salaries.

According to reports, players of the Nnewi-based side saw out the 2016/17 season without being paid for five months.

Even former NPFL star, Victor Ezeji, tried but failed in his attempt to bring the club’s players and management to a truce.

The meeting, held on Monday, in Nnewi was botched after thugs barred the players’ lawyers from being part of the parley.

“We believe the LMC will come out clearly and boldly to say enough is enough,” the spokesperson for the players told AOIFootball on Friday.

“And that players should not be taken for granted anymore and that we be paid what we are entitled to.”

“The club has turned us into beggars and that cannot be accepted,” added another affected player.

“The LMC has done well so far, but they ought to use our own case to make it clear that contracts be respected in this league.”

IfeanyiUbah finished ninth last season and narrowly lost to Niger Tornadoes in the Aiteo Cup semi-finals.
