However, they said Dalung never visited the team in Atlanta where he reportedly asked team captain, John Mikel Obi to take charge of the team.

“Where did he visit us? We never saw him while we were in Atlanta. I think they just issued a press release that he came to see us, we never saw him,” Vanguard quoted a source as saying.

“We have accepted his apology and are happy that they paid us our camp allowance for 11 days. We were in camp for more than a month in Nigeria and Atlanta, so they should pay us all the allowances as well as the bonus for the two matches we have played,” a team member that would not want his name mentioned added.
