Head coach of D’Tigress, Otis Hughley, has said his true value had been undermined by the sports ministry following the delay of his outstanding salaries and bonuses.
Theeditorial.ng gathered that Hughley is being owed salaries for the FIBA Women’s World Cup Qualifying tournament in Serbia held in February this year and the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
The former Sacramento Kings assistant coach revealed to AIPS that he wanted to leave his role with the team the sports ministry failed to meet its obligations.
He said, “I have not heard anything because there have been promises that have not been met so I am just tired of dealing with it.
“The minister misled me from day one. He said he was going to do several things and he has not done anything. His office is misrepresented, they promised to do things time after time I can’t deal with that anymore.”
He also expressed his displeasure over the Federal Government’s withdrawal from international basketball for two years.
“What they have done to these girls and want to invest in grassroots is absurd,” he added.
