By Marissa Payne
Two Nigerian soccer players have accused a Portuguese club of gross mistreatment after they allegedly refused a pay cut at the start of the 2016-2017 season. In a flurry of tweets on Thursday, BBC sports writer Oluwashina Okeliji outlined the accusations of strikers Uche Nwofor and Michael Uchebo, who alleged that top-tier team Boavista treated them “like a slave” at the end of their tenures.
“They are gangsters. They force you to reduce salary or force you out. In France and Germany (these) cruel things don’t happen,” Nwofor said.
“I asked Boavista why,” Uchebo, 26, added. “They won’t say a word.”
Uchebo is no longer under contract with Boavista, according to TransferMarkt.com, which tracks world players’ movements between clubs. According to the website, his contract was terminated in July and he is unaffiliated with any team.
