Falconets defender hospitalised after NFF paid only N10,000 each after World Cup

Falconets defender Mary Ologbosere reportedly went into trauma at a hotel in Abuja after it emerged that the NFF was not going to pay members of the team on arrival from the U20 World Cup in Papua Guinea.

She has been referred to the traumatic unit of a hospital in Abuja after she suffered from depression.

Kapital FM reports that The 18-year-old defender lost her father while the Falconets were at the World Cup and the entire family are counting on her to come back and bury him.

The radio reports further that upon their return on Wednesday, they were simply paid N10,000 each to return to their various homes.

A shocked Ologbosere cried all through the night and had to be rushed to hospital as a result, where she has now been admitted at the traumatic unit.

“She is totally shattered by this heartless treatment,” simply reported a team official at the Serob Legacy Hotel.

“It’s truly a pathetic case.”

It was gathered that the N10,000 paid each player was the only money they received from the NFF since they opened training camp for the World Cup earlier this year.

The team have vowed not to leave the hotel they were booked into until they have got their cash.

At the World Cup, they won two matches, against Spain and Canada.
