Afcon 2019: Pay us our dues or let us go home – Zimbabwe players
Zimbabwe might not face DR Congo in the final Group A game at the Africa Cup of Nations finals if they make good their threats of leaving for home.
As reported by Zimeye, the players are allegedly owed $12,500 each by the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa). A meeting was apparently held on Thursday between Zifa officials and the players to resolve the issue but it seems they are contemplating pulling out of the competition before their last match.
“A number of players also confirmed they had told the Zifa officials they were ready to abandon camp and fly back home,” Zimeye reported.
“Xolisani Gwesela (Zifa’s Communications Manager), has been sent to establish how much it will cost to withdraw from the tournament because of events that happened today [Thursday].”
