Players of Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Heartland have debunked the report making the rounds that its management only owe them just two months’ salaries being the month of January and February 2021.
Speaking on the condition of anonymity and not to fall prey to victimization by management, a player of the Naze Millionaire said: “It’s said reading the report that we are been owed for two months as our employers want to write off the previous months owed us.
“To set the record straight and clear this falsehood, some players and I are been owed seven months salaries and not two. Aside from that, I can not also recall the number of match bonuses and other allowances they are owing the entire squad.
“The situation in the camp is so terrible as we are treated as orphans by our Board and Management, we hardly get what to eat as there is no money. The little food we can afford can only fill our bellies and just keep going as we can’t afford better meals daily.
“We deserved to be paid, despite their claim that it was the previous management and not them that was owing us. We all have existing contracts with the club to provide them wrong.
“We want the management to pay all the outstanding seven months salaries and bonuses owed us before this weekend’s Oriental Derby game against Abia Warriors in Owerri,” he said.
Recall last weekend, the Naze Millionaires saw its five games unbeaten run come to an end after they lost 2-0 to derby rivals Rangers at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu.
