Lack of fund threatens Wolves

WolvesNigeria Professional Football League [NPFL] club, Warri Wolves, is in danger of missing their trip to Ethiopia ahead of their Caf Confederation Cup match against Dedebit FC this weekend.

Supersport.com has been informed that the Warri club could miss the trip to Addis Ababa as their financier, the Delta State government is yet to release fund meant for the trip to East African nation.

Sources at the club disclosed that the management of Wolves had submitted their budget for the trip to honour the second leg, first round clash with Dedebit FC earlier this month, but have received no words from the different ministries in the state we have to go through on the matter with less than seven days to the date of the match.

“The budget for the trip to Addis Ababa was submitted immediately after the first leg against the Ethiopian club.

Up till today, there has not been any response on whether the fund would be available or not.

Now we have just a few days to make travelling plans,” said one of the sources at the club to supersport.com on Monday.

Wolves officials are, however, worried that they could be faced with hiccups in planning their plan since they are yet to make arrangement for their team’s flight to East Africa.

“Today is Monday, and it is expected that by Wednesday we should have tidied up our travelling plans and make sure we leave by Friday since the match is on Sunday.

“Latest by Wednesday we should have firmed up all arrangement but as things stand at the moment that looks a big doubt because there is no money to make such arrangement.

“But we are hoping before Wednesday things will change or else we could be thrown out of Africa for failing to honour the second leg,” another source hinted.

Wolves won its first leg against Dedebit FC 2-0 with Oghenekaro Etebo and Gbolahan Salami scoring the goals.

This month Dolphins were thrown out of the Confederation Cup by CAF for failing to arrive in time for their match at Club Africain.
