They need our love and support. I'm proud because they made it possible for us to celebrate success in Africa this year," the Trabzonspor of Turkey midfielder said.

The 23-year-old has also been hugely involved with making sure that the girls are paid their entitlements.

Pulse Sports earlier reported that the Sports Ministry invested money meant to pay the players on Treasury Bills.

According to top sources, the money (specific sum unknown) was used to buy Treasury Bills with a new generation bank which will mature in February 2017.
