Ezeji blames players for salary impasse

Victor Ezeji

TVCE [SOCCER] – NPFL star, Victor Ezeji says local based players should appoint legal representatives and also apply basic rules of formal documentation of contract and agreement with clubs as a way to forestall the breach of payment.

The NPFL, last season, was characterized by gross breach of the League’s framework on remuneration for players.

Reliving his 20-year league experience on the local scene, Ezeji said he avoided most of the snarls by dubious club administrators because he hired legal representatives to oversee his transfers.

He said: “You won’t blame players who globetrot, things are not done professionally here because you see players being owed. In India, Malaysia they don’t owe that much. We’ve seen players go for seven or eight months without pay in a lucrative business like football.

“You work under the sun and rain and when it’s 31 days you’re not paid; it’s disheartening. Players in South Africa and Northern Africa are not running out to play elsewhere, they’re comfortable in their countries.

 “I was able to read between the lines, I hired a lawyer, a legal team. They negotiated all my deals and we go into black and white but most of our players are not patient. When you offer them anything they take without documenting it and when they don’t get paid they cry foul.”
