A mass exodus of players and coaches has began in the camp of Sunshine Stars following the Nigerian Professional Football League club’s inability to offset the outstanding salaries to their personnel, The PUNCH has learnt.
The Akure Gunners, who finished 11th in the domestic league last season, allegedly owe head coach Kabiru Dogo, who has been heavily linked with a move to Lobi Stars, three months salaries, while his assistants are owed seven months wages.
The staff of the Ondo State Football Agency are owed bulk of salaries too, our correspondent learnt.
Sunshine Stars players, our correspondent also gathered, are owed three months salaries, which has seen no fewer than five players depart the club in recent days for better fortunes elsewhere.
Omaka Anthony, Ojo Olurunleke, Ogunniyi Omojesu, Wasiu Jimoh and Jide Fatokun are some of the key players that reportedly joined new teams in the NPFL ahead of the forthcoming season scheduled to kick off between the last week of September and first week of October 2020. (Punch)
