The reason why Aaron Samuel left the Super Eagles camp may be because of money, according to latest reports.
The 24-year old had failed to travel with the Super Eagles to Cameroon for their World Cup qualifier tomorrow, having left the team’s camp on Saturday, and a new report has now claimed the striker left the Nigeria camp because he needed to travel to China to claim the monies he is being owed by his former club, Guangzhou R&F.
According to ScoreNigeria, the CSKA Moscow striker has had to quit the Eagles Camp so as to return to China to collect ‘many millions’ owed him by his former club.
He has had to fly out to China because his former Chinese club owe him a lot of money, some good millions,” the website quoted a source.
“The money is a lot and that was why he has to be the one there in person to claim it.
“He wanted to use the international break to do that before he returns to his Russian club.
Aaron Samuel, who was recalled for the World Cup qualifiers against Cameron after a long absence, was allowed to leave the Eagles training camp in Uyo yesterday ‘to attend to pressing personal issues’.
The Eagles departed Uyo by a chartered flight Sunday morning without the striker.
