Exclusive : Rijeka Fine Theophilus Solomon For Arriving Late To StadiumAllnigeriasoccer.com understands that Theophilus Solomon has been fined half of his monthly wages by Croatian top division club HNK Rijeka after he arrived the stadium late for the semi - final cup tie with Istra 1961

Despite being on loan at second - tier Pomorac until the end of this season, club president of Rijeka, Damir MiškoviÄ� had recalled the Nigerian starlet from his loan spell to enable him feature in the important match which was held on March 26.

But the former Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles invitee arrived the Aldo Drosina Stadium approximately 30 minutes to team talk and was omitted from the 18 - man squad by manager Matjaž Kek.

Just this January, the 18 - year - old striker penned a professional contract with HNK Rijeka which keeps him at Stadion Kantrida until January 2016.

Theophilus Solomon is being paid 2,500 euros every month by HNK Rijeka, meaning he is 1,250 euros poorer following the financial penalty.

He lasted 45 minutes in an exhibition match between Rijeka and Grobni�an on Wednesday but was a shadow of himself.
