–Port Harcourt club now free of debts
General Manager of Glo Premier League club, Dolphins Football Club, Joe Johnson says the club is now free of debts to its players.
Johnson said it was not something to shout about but since it was a big media issue when the League Management Company listed Dolphins amongst clubs that were owing players, it therefore becomes important to use the same source to say the club is now clean.
According to Johnson, the club is now up to date with payments.
“We have paid everything we owe the players, at least up till the last match we played in the League on the road to Sunshine Stars.
“All outstanding match bonuses have been paid to date and of course, we do not owe salaries,” Joe Johnson said.
On the issue of signing on fees being owed for last season, Johnson said the club has done all within its powers which are the salaries and match bonuses but anything regarding signing on fees belongs to the Rivers State government.
“We hope to get a listening ear from the governor as promised by the sports commissioner and we believe that it will be sorted out before the end of the season,” Johnson said.
Dolphins’ defender, Victor Ezuruike, confirmed that the club is no longer indebted to the players but added that they await the Rivers State government to fulfill their part of the bargain
