Head Coach of Dakkada FC Caleb Esu has lamented financial challenges facing the officials and players of the club for the past seven months.
The former Go Round boss disclosed that both the officials and the players of the have been on half salary since September 2019 for unknown reasons.
Esu revealed this to Akwa Ibom based radio station and claimed the situation has demoralized his team long before the league was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Dakkada FC as a young child and small team in the state is trying to carve a niche for themselves. In terms of funding, we commend the Commissioner for Youth and Sports who really have taken the bull by the horn to see that we stay afloat.
“It has been a difficult one with the team actually because we’ve been collecting half salary since September up till this day. That aspect has not really gone well with the team motivationally and I think that’s where the problem is.”
Esu, however, added that he has continued to monitor the progress of the players, in spite of the current break.
Dakkada gained promotion to the Nigeria professional football league this season and are currently placed eighth on the log with 34 points and 14 matches left to conclude this season.
