TAT is privy to information that the management of The Gambia Football Federation’s first division side Gambia Ports Authority failed to pay team players their monthly allowances for more than two months without giving them any notice.
The crisis has resulted in some players deciding to sit down and not show up for training last week.
On Monday, the entire first team unanimously agreed to boycott training until the GPA team management pays their allowances.
A senior player at GPA told this medium that, “we agreed as players not to go for training if our allowance is not paid. We will not go until otherwise because it is not fair to us as players. We have families who rely on us and if we are not paid how can we feed ourselves and those that rely on us,” he asked.
Gambia Ports Authority (GPA) is one of the leading teams in the country’s top-flight football, producing several players for all categories of the national teams.
They have also won a couple of trophies since they gained promotion to the top tier of Gambian Football.
