ZIMBABWE PLAYERS BOYCOTT TRAINING OVER PAYMENT DISPUTE

ZIMBABWE PLAYERS BOYCOTT TRAINING OVER PAYMENT DISPUTE

The usual payment dispute, which has characterized African national football teams, has come up again just as the Africa Cup of Nations 2019 is about kicking off.  

Egyptian publication, Kingfut, has reported that players of Zimbabwe boycotted their last training session ahead of their featuring  in the opening game with Egypt.

This is amidst a payment dispute with their football association.

In an issue that is sadly all too common for African national teams, there is an ongoing a payment dispute between the players and the FA of Zimbabwe.

As a result, the players have failed to turn up for their organised training session as a protest against the powers that be despite the fact that there is just one more day before Zimbabwe open up the tournament against the hosts.

In similar fashion, reigning Africa Cup of Nations champions Cameroon are also undergoing a dispute with their FA over bonuses which has resulted in head coach Clarence Seedorf calling in Samuel Eto’o as a mediator.
