Some Home-based Players Beg Foreign-based Stars Money In Super Eagles Camp Mfon Udoh

Former Enyimba striker Mfon Udoh has claimed that some home-based players beg foreign-based players for money while in Super Eagles camp.

Udoh made the claim while speaking on The Abu Azeez Podcast, hosted by former Beach Eagles star Abu Azeez.

Most of the foreign players, when they see the local players like us they tend to look down on us, they look us like who is this. Even 90 per cent of them I have played in the Super Eagles before them, just because they have been consistent in terms of getting invited they feel they own the team.

So because we are in Nigerian league its very difficult to break into the main Super Eagles, So all those things make them look down on us.

And because we dont have money and the home-based, when they go there (camp) and because they earn like N100,000, N600,000 and they see who is earning N10 million, N20 million or N30 million, they go and start begging them for money. So because of that they dont like to talk to us, they just give us space.

Udoh currently holds the record for highest number of goals scored in the Nigerian Premier Football League in a single season.

The 31-year-old is also the first player to score over 35 goals in two consecutive seasons in Nigeria.

Between 2012 and 2014, he scored 39 goals in the regular league and three in national cup competitions, for a total of 41 goals in two seasons.

Also he was the highest goal scorer in the 2016 CAF champions league with nine goals.

His feat in the continental competition led to his nomination for the award of CAF African footballer of the year at the end of 2016.

On November 2014 Udoh was called up to a friendly game between Nigerian and Ghanaian home-based teams.

He made his first appearance for the national team as a 45th-minute substitute and has three caps.
