Flying Eagles Camp News : $100 Parting Gift For 9 Players Decamped; Impressive 1-1 Result Vs RB Salzburg YouthPublished: May 14, 2019
Allnigeriasoccer.com understands that nine players departed the Flying Eagles Monarch Hotel in Bad Gögging on Tuesday morning after a team meeting.
Before leaving for the airport in Frankfurt, the Flying Eagles officials gave the dropped players a parting gift of US$100.00 each which did not go down well with the players and one of the foreign based players rejected the money for being too meager.
The home-based players complained bitterly about the way they were treated after several days of camping with the team.
Meanwhile, the friendly with Red Bull Salzburg U23 team on Tuesday went ahead as planned even though the kickoff had to be moved because the Flying Eagles' bus arrived in Austria late due to the bad weather in Europe.
The Austrians netted the opening goal in the first half but Banik Ostrava's Tijani Muhammed netted a second-half equaliser for the Flying Eagles, who face RB Leipzig in their last friendly on Friday, May 17 before heading to Poland for the World Cup.
In truth, it was an impressive result for the Paul Aigbogun-led side as Red Bull Salzburg have a famed youth academy and their U19 team won the UEFA Youth League in 2017.
As at the time of writing this report, the players and officials were on their way back to Germany.
