Overview Of: nigeria footballer thrown out of hotel in brazil


One of Nigeria’s footballers sent back to Nigeria from Rio de Janeiro
after they were told by Nigerian Football officials that their feeding
and living expenses can no longer be catered, has lamented how they were
thrown out of the team’s hotel and had to spend their own money to pay
for the two nights they spent in Brazil before coming back to Nigeria.

The Nigerian Football Federation ordered two alternate players Stanley
Dimgba and Yusuf Mohammed as well as several unnecessary officials to
head back to Nigeria as they could no longer be catered for, and one of
the players who prefers to remain anonymous has now cried out.

“God will fight my fight for me. It was heart-breaking when we were told
to quit the team’s hotel in Sao Paulo,” said the player to

“When we returned to Sao Paulo (from Salvador)  they gave rooms to only
the 18 players registered for the competition and even some team
officials did not get hotel rooms too. For the two extra nights we spent
in Brazil, we had to pay with our own money for our hotel and
feeding. That is life for you.”

A top NFF Official speaking to The cable said,

“Yes, it is true that the curator, media officer as well as the two
alternative players have been asked to go back to Nigeria. The ministry
can only take care of 18 players and seven officials. The ministry
cannot afford to be paying for extra rooms, feeding, allowances out of
the 25 people that are supposed to make up the team to the Olympics. The
aforementioned people have already left the team’s hotel and are no
longer with us.”
