Gabon league players call for strike

Players Strike

Local footballers in Gabon, the host nation of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, have threatened to strike in a row over non-payment of salaries.

Chief among four main demands is the back payment of salaries dating from the present day back to 2013.

“If our concerns are not met, we will tell the players not to start the championship [next month],” Remy Ebanega, president of the Gabonese footballers’ association (ANFPG), told BBC Sport.

The Gabonese league has yet to respond to ANFPG’s request.
