Female footballers are suffering in Nigeria – Mbachu

Female footballers are suffering in Nigeria – Mbachu
Stella Mbachu has expressed displeasure and sadness over the financial crises of former Nigerian Women’s Premier league (NWPL) Champions that are being owed salaries for over a year.

The Nigerian legend is disgusted with the predicament with women footballers in the country after the news of Pelican stars at the Governor Ben Ayade’s office in Calabar over unpaid salaries for 14 months.

“Female players suffer a lot in Nigeria, Mbachu,  who won multiple domestic titles with Rivers Angels, told Punch.

"We know that there are economic problems now and many state governments are striving hard to keep things in shape.

“But to owe the players this much is not good for the club, the players and the nation. I will support players to protest what’s their due.

“I once played for Pelicans, but during our time, nothing like this happened.

"These players have needs and they have families. How would they take care of themselves if they are being owed?”

The former Nigerian international extended her sympathy to the players urging the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) to act fast to amend the difficult situation of the Calabar based club.

Pelican are the record holders of the Nigerian Women’s Premier league with eight trophies to their names.
