Former Super Eagles skipper, Joseph Yobo, has expressed his sadness over the poor treatment meted on players of the Super Falcons since they returned from this 2016 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

Since returning from the Women’s AFCON, the Falcons are yet to be paid their outstanding allowances by the cash-strapped Nigeria Football Federation, and have not been hosted nor rewarded by the federal government.On Wednesday morning the Falcons decided to embark on a protest march at the entrance of the National Assembly Complex in Abuja, agitating for their outstanding allowances and bonuses estimated to be $24,000 each, approximately N11.5m per player.

In the course of the protest, the Chief of Staff to President Muhammad Buhari, Abba Kyari met with the players and assured them that they will be paid their entitlements in two days.

Reacting to the protest march by the Super  Falcons, Yobo called on the concerned bodies to look into the issue.

“My feelings are hurt by the treatment of our champions, the Super Falcons. This issue must be resolved for the dignity of our sports people,” Yobo wrote on his Twitter handle on Wednesday.
