Players desert Enyimba as cash crisis rocks team

OFFICIALS of Enyimba Football Club of Aba have gone bowl in hand trying to see how to resolve the cash crunch that is threatening to derail the teams plans for next season.

An official of the team told The Guardian yesterday that the team is in danger of being caught unprepared for the new season, which begins on December 1 due to lack of funds to begin preparations for the season.

He revealed that the club owes some of the players arrears of sign-on fees and other entitlements, adding that some of the stars have started deserting the team for greener environments

According to the source, most of the players, including team captain, Josiah Maduabuchi, have started negotiations with richer clubs after waiting in vain for the management of the club to come good on its promises.

We have not been getting adequate funding from the state government, which is the owner of the club, and to stay afloat, the management has resorted to borrowing money to run the club.

We are appealing to the state government to come to our aid so that we can at least settle our debts and begin proper preparation for the new season.
