Nkana players almost boycotted Forest match


Zambia’s most decorated club Nkana got a scare on Wednesday when their players almost boycotted Thursday’s MTN Super League match against Forest Rangers.

ZamFoot are reporting that the players have gone for two months without receiving their salaries and winning bonuses.

On Wednesday, the executive met with the players to hear their grievances and it was resolved that the players will receive their dues next week.

According to the report, the players decided not to go into camp as per tradition and all reported for the match from home.

“Boycotting the match could have been bad for the team. So we decided just to protest by not going into camp,” a player told ZamFoot after the 2-1 home defeat to Forest Rangers.

“At the moment even us players are confused. The team keeps on signing new players despite us going for months without getting paid,”

Nkana’s financial problems hit social media when Republic President Edgar Lungu bailed them twice to fulfil continental fixtures.

Last week, the club had to use Zambia Air force plane to fulfil a continental fixture in Tanzania.
