Samson Siasia who arrived back in the country with some of his players on Monday, August 22 revealed that they have not been paid

their full allowances for Rio 2016. The Dream Team VI were paid some allowances during the Games after the players threatened to stay away from training.

“They said no match bonuses when the Games began, but they didn’t tell us this before the tournament,” Samson said as quoted by  FC Naija.

“Not one penny. It was when the players cried that they came with 11 days daily allowance and that was all they gave us. They then said they would pay us bonuses only when we got to the medal stages but up till now, we don’t even know how much for the Bronze we won,” Siasia continued.

“Not one penny. It was when the players cried that they came with 11 days daily allowance and that was all they gave us.”

The Olympic team won Nigeria’s only medal at Rio 2016. The bronze won is the third Olympic football medal for Nigeria.

  1. I remembered how IBB related directly with Westerhof and Bonfrere Jo. Lately, Dr Goodluck did not only relate well with the late Stephen Keshi but called and spoke with the national players during tournaments. Buhari is complete rubbish. There isn’t a single aspect of life Nigerians can associate well with him except his satanic Islamic agenda. Pity!
