The coach attended the press conference without his players as players were busily trying to resolve their bonuses and allowances issues.
Vice-captain, Ahmed Musa was expected to attend Tuesday’s pre-match conference along with Gernot Rohr, but stayed back at the hotel with the rest of his teammates to discuss the issue.
It would be recalled that the Super Falcons staged a similar protest after they were knocked out of the ongoing 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France against Germany on Saturday.
The Flying Eagles also protested over the non-payment of their bonuses, refusing to leave their hotel following an elimination at the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Poland.
Nigeria will be looking forward to book their tickets to the knockout stage of the competition with a win against the National Elephants of Guinea at the Alexandria Sports Stadium tomorrow.
