Players and coaches of the Aba-based club have been placed on half salary following their shock elimination from the Federation Cup, were they were soundly beaten 2-0 by lower division club Prime FC.
The club had earlier released a statement on their website in which they expressed their disappointment at their abysmal performance this season and accused the players of being undisciplined and lacking commitment to work, despite of all efforts by the management to continuously keep them motivated and having spent enormous resources in making perform better.
The technical crew led by former Super Eagles coach Austin Eguavoen were not spared as they too have also had their salaries slashed by 50 percent.
The management further mandated the players and technical crew to ensure that the team wins its remaining NPL matches in order to at least secure their place on the continent next season or face further sanctions.
