    Shame, shame, shame!
    SE thrown out of hotel gym, according to report below. Under normal circumstances, no hotel management will take an extreme measure like this against a customer. It’s never done. It can only happen when the relationship with the customer is badly damaged. Perhaps due to outstanding hotel bills. NFF has probably being owing this hotel for a long time. This is perhaps the hotel management’s way of showing their anger and frustration. The regret here is that their anger is directed at the wrong people. They should please direct their anger at the NFF, not the SE coach or the players.
    These are the type of distractions Rohr and the players face regularly because of NFF incompetence. Bonuses unpaid, poor pitches, they can’t even have a relaxed stay in their hotel, or have access to the hotel gym for training!

    • @pompei have you verified the authenticity of the story?….no other media outlet has corroborated what owngoalnigeria published some hours ago…..let us wait and get the full gist before we conclude…. owngoalnigeria is known to be anti SE at times….. let us all just hope for the best outing for SE this coming days

      @pompei, It’s rather painful, disgraceful and a shame that such ugly invidents are still happening to our team. It’s a pity. Whilst all these illtreatments and distractions, u still find some idiots advising the coach on ” why they cant lose to liberia or how to play” instead of calling out on the nff to address these back scene ugly incidents. None has urged the nff to settle the back log of bonuses, allowances and salaries being owed the team for the past one year and counting and yet they expect the team to perform wonders. All they know is to remind the coach that the 3rd of september is on friday. It’s a shame honestly.

      • pompei 3 years ago

        Indeed Oakfield, it is such an embarrassment. Our boys don’t need this kind of distractions right now. They need all the help and support they can get. NFF’s failure to fulfill their obligations is the biggest obstacle to the world cup that we are now facing. I wonder, do these guys at the NFF have no shame? Every week, we hear stories of someone NFF is owing. I even joked the other day that they can stay in hotel and eat at restaurants on credit. From this report, the hotel part seems to be a reality! What a disgrace!

    • Dr. Banks 3 years ago

      Oh wow………..if this is true then I will say the Hotel management action is highly unprofessional and non-patriotic and should be totally condemned in totality. No matter the situation on wether NFF were owning them or not, this is surely not a way to treat customers at all.

      Eko Hotel needs to know that they stand to gain a lot more from the SE stay in their hotel in terms of free advertisement, SE is a National Brand and all their activities appears in news, social media and even TV screens for many aspiring customers to see. I personally have concluded, after watching clips of their training at the gym during their last camping, that I will stay in the hotel whenever next time I travel home but with this action of their management I will have to reconsider.

      Nigerian business owners particularly the Tourism section should learn a thing or two on PROFESSIONALISM

      • pompei 3 years ago

        Dr. Banks, I also agree that they should not have directed their anger at the coach or the players. That was uncalled for. Their anger should have been levelled at the NFF. They have every right to be angry with the NFF. They are running a business, not a charity. Even a charity needs money to fund its operations!
        If all other customers behave like NFF, Eko hotel will soon close down.
        I don’t blame the management for being angry. But please leave our coach and the boys alone. Face the real culprits, the NFF.

        • Dr. Banks 3 years ago

          Nobody is asking them to be a Charity organisation but the fact remains that they acted very unprofessionally towards a great client. Do you know that most of those players can single-handedly pay off whatever NFF could be owing the Hotel? So for any of them to be embarrassed like that is highly disrespectful. There are official route of resolution of whatever dispute they may have with NFF and that should’ve been followed. Surely that’s not how to run a successful business my brother

          I repeat, business owners in 9ja need a crash course on DECORUM

          Mind you, we haven’t even been told that NFF is owing them any money anyway

          • pompei 3 years ago

            Dr, Banks, leave that thing. You’re talking about professionalism, decorum and patriotism. Are all these things edible? Can you use these things to put food on your family’s table? Yes, these things are honorable, but condition can make crayfish to bend. Hotel na business ooo. They have bills to pay, and if money is not coming in, the hotel will have to close. If it was your hotel, an investment you put blood, sweat and tears into for many years, you Dr. Banks would have reacted with even more harshness than what we are hearing, lol. I can see you Dr. Banks using koboko to pursue the players from the gym, lol. Just joking.
            But seriously, we’re saying the same thing regarding the players and the coaches. These guys don’t deserve this treatment. The hotel should have directed their discontent to the real culprits, the NFF.

    • @Pompei, in case you haven’t realised, owngoal specialize in sensational headlines. One thing I’ve learnt about Nigerian blogs is to wait 24 hours, the story, especially bad news stories often turn out to be fake.

      Owngoal cook up stories a lot of the time or key into rumours a lot of the time from conversations on Twitter and run with them as if they have a scoop.

      They rush to be the first to publish so much so that they do not even let spelling mistakes slow down their “going to press”.

      I wouldn’t be hasty in quoting owngoal got any breaking news. 5 minutes on Twitter and you’ll get the real gist. Lol

  • GLORY 3 years ago

    Haven read that report, I just couldnt find anything relating NFF failure to pay, as reason for stopping the team from using the gym. It seems from the report that there was some mix up regarding sessions for visitors and for the SE team. But even if it was as a result of debt incurred by Nff, I will wanna state here, that the Hotel management has acted very very unprofessionally, no matter how we look at it. These players are on national assignment and deserve better treatment. Also the management should have thoroughly addressed that problem with the NFF before even allowing the team to lodge in. But to allow them in and now coming to act in this manner is just so so unacceptable.

  • Sunnyb 3 years ago

    @Pompei , bro imagine what’s happening to our National team in their home soil, and if these guys loses or draw now we would blaming them myself included, this country makes me sick, Luggard and co will never rest peace. Why is so hard to do the right things in Nigeria, corrupt officials and saboteurs everywhere.

    • Ayphillydegreat 3 years ago

      No Sunnyb. The problem is not the country it is Iheanacho and Onuachu that doesn’t have anything new to offer. Lmao!!!

    • pompei 3 years ago

      SunnyB, we just dey take corner eye dey observe the whole show. If the NFF were not owing the hotel, by now they would have come out to vehemently deny it. But up till now, pin never drop from their side, except the tales by moonlight explanation of what happened regarding the gym. How can somebody use hotel facilities and not expect to pay the bill eventually? Hehehehe, it’s so funny actually. Nigeria we hail thee!

  • Poor planning.

  • Sunnyb 3 years ago
