A defender got a pay rise.
The management of Warri Wolves has slashed the salaries of six players and increased the salary of a defender.
Amongst the affected players were Musa Najare, Ambrose Vanzekin, Achibi Ewenike, Efe Yarhere and Omofoman Freedom.
The player with the increased salary is defender Joseph Eyimofe, a consistent player in the Wolves squad this season.
The media officer of the club, Moses Etu, in a press release, said salaries of players with low productivity will also be reduced by 50 per cent or they would be sacked if they do not improve.
“After the draw against Sharks the management sat down to review the performances of the players.
“Aside, management has been monitoring the activities of some players who treat Warri Wolves as Father Christmas.
“This is a serious warning to them to sit up because management can no longer tolerate their actions.
“The sanction is for their salaries and cumulative wages to be reduced to 50% with immediate effect.
“At the same time, management is impressed with Joseph Eyimofe, a former Flying Eagles player who has lived up to expectations both in performance and behaviour and has decided to increase his salary and cumulative wage.
“Many of them have really disappointed us this season and it is time for them to sit up or get out of the way for serious ones,” said Etu.
Etu did not disclose what the affected players’ initial pay was and what their current salary is.
