|Dolphins Manager, Stanley Eguma|
Players of Dolphins FC resumed training today ahead of their first league game of the season against Plateau United on Sunday.
The players called a strike on Monday morning in protest of unpaid wages, match bonuses and sign on fees from last season.
However, manager of the side, Stanley Eguma told naijafootball247.blogspot.com that he met with the sports commissioner, Boma Iyaye and the issue has been resolved.
“After the strike on Monday, I met with the commissioner on Tuesday night and he promised to pay all 20 matches bonuses owed the players as well as September salary,” Eguma said.
“He also assured that they will start working on paying the balance of their match bonuses so the players can get it as soon as they return from Jos where they play Plateau United on Sunday.”
Eguma also assured that the players were happy with the new development and have returned to training.
Assistant captain of the side, Sunday Rotimi confirmed to naijafootball247.blogspot.com that they had returned to training.
“We have not seen or heard from the commissioner, but the manager told us what the agreement is and of course we were fighting to be paid. So if they have agreed in principle to pay us by Friday it wise to return to training and at least shake off as much of the two day we lost as we can.”
Dolphins were owed 20 match bonuses from last season, 60% of their sign on fees and salary for September 2010.
