The nation’s players were absent at Monday’s presentation of a cheque of 11 million dalasis as they continued to protest the decision of government to give them ‘only’ 11 million dalasis to share.
The nation’s senior national team propelled the country to the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time in our history – but a row has erupted over their bonuses.
People familiar with the issue had told The Fatu Network the players ‘feel insulted’ by the 11 million sum, going by what each will get after it’s split.
Gambia Football Federation officials were at State House on Monday but the players did not turn up, one official said. The cheque of 11.1 million dalasis was however collected by the team’s manager.
The Fatu Network understands most of the nation’s footballers are currently on holiday in the country.
