Akande: Sunshine Stars still owe me money

Abiodun Akande claims he is owed the sum of #1.2m by Sunshine Stars, following his stint at the Akure outfit.

Akande, who is currently with the Pride of Rivers on training tour in Spain reveals he dumped the team because of their lack of ambition.

"Sunshine Stars does not give a player any hope that they want to win trophies; they are not an ambitious side and that was one of my reason for leaving the club," he told Goal.

"My short stint there wasn't a good experience at all. I don't like to recall those horrific moments. Rivers United gave me a silver lining and am very grateful to them."

He recalled, "I played for some  months and did not get paid as at when due. I worked for Sunshine Stars and they did not pay me so I felt it was enough. A labourer deserves his wages at the end of the month."

"It was not in my contract that I will be playing for them freely so I don't think I have done anything wrong. They are owing me as much as #1.2m by the time I left them to join Rivers United."

The talented goalkeeper called on the Ondo State Government to fast track the payment of his entitlements.
