Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) president Amaju Pinnick has been accused of making life threatening statement at the Super Falcons after they requested their bonuses be paid.
The Falcons defeated Cameroon 1 - 0 on their own ground to win a record 8th AWCON title in late November.
Falcons assistant captain Osinachi Ohale said Pinnick threatened to report them to their various overseas clubs if they disgracing Nigeria by asking for bonuses.
“He said so many things including that he will report us to our clubs if we are bent on disgracing Nigeria,” Ohale opened up.
“This was not what he was telling us when he addressed us in Abuja before we left for Cameroon (for the women’s AFCON).”
The defender also revealed that NFF exco Chris Green promised the Falcons they will be paid all their monies while they were still in Cameroon but they weren't.
Meanwhile, news filtering in suggest the Falcons could be banned by the NFF.
The players stand-off over unpaid entitlements could lead them to lose their jobs along with their coaches.
Striker Francisca Ordega has been particularly fingered when she lamented that she regrets playing for the country.
