Football - Guinea U20: Bonuses at 5 euros as Zayatte tackles the ministry

After their elimination in the group stages of the UFOA A qualifying tournament for the AFCON U20, scheduled to take place in Egypt in 2023, the Guinean delegation returned to Conakry. The team's steward has taken to the stage to denounce the treatment given to the delegation by the Ministry of Youth and Sports. At issue is the derisory amount of bonuses given to members of the technical staff.

The case of bonuses is far from reaching its epilogue in Guinea. After the premature elimination of the Syli junior from the group stages of the UFOA A tournament, another scandal has shaken the Guinean participation in this competition. Indeed, after this mission, the former Guinean international and steward of the selection, Kamil Zayatte, did not take time to denounce some failures. The former captain of the Syli accused the Ministry of Youth and Sports of having abandoned the team. "The Ministry of Sports abandoned the U20 team to their fate in Mauritania, without support. The minister did not know that the team was engaged in a competition in Mauritania," wrote Kamil Zayatte on his Facebook page.

On their return, things did not go as planned between the Ministry of Sports and the technical staff of the Syli National, said Zayatte. In fact, upon their return to Conakry, each member of the technical staff received only 40 thousand Guinean francs in bonuses. The equivalent of less than 5 euros. "Arrived in Guinea, we were given 40 thousand Guinean francs per person. They did not respect the joint order signed by themselves. They don't give a damn, then they ask for results," said Kamil Zayatte.

This, in contradiction with the ministerial order signed by the Ministry of Sports on the payment of bonuses to various national teams. This episode is another reminder of the one of June 2021. During a gathering of the national team in Turkey, the players had skipped training for non-payment of premiums. On the side of the Ministry of Youth and Sports, it is total silence. No official communication on this case of premiums that is at the heart of the debate on social networks.
