Players of Bayelsa United have gone on strike over unpaid signing-on fees for last season as well as this current season. A player with the club, who asked not to be named, said the club negotiated to pay signing-on fees instead of enhanced salaries, but have not kept to their word. He said their action became necessary as an earlier promise to pay the money in June was not kept. “We did not train yesterday (Friday) and have vowed to continue with our strike until our signing-on fees are paid,” the player toldsupersport.com. “The signing-on fees are for this season because that is how management negotiated with us. “We were not put on enhanced salaries; rather it is just like the old arrangement of signing-on fees and the normal salary. “However, we have not received a kobo from the signing-on fees and we have decided not to train again until the issue is resolved. “We had been assured early in June that we would be paid, but it’s been three months since then and nothing has happened.” Bayelsa United are 17th in the Glo Premier League with 30 points from 25 matches.
