The Confederation of African Football ‘s female player of the year Asisat Oshoala has called for the continent to make conditions better for women.
Nigeria and Arsenal Ladies striker Oshoala, who won the Caf award for the second time on Thursday, said: “We deserve more. “The federations in every country have to do more for female football.”
Oshoala, 22, has previously stated she feels the Nigerian women’s team has been mistreated and disrespected.
In December the Super Falcons held a sit-in at a hotel in Abuja over outstanding payments after they had won the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations that month.
They also protested outside parliament in Abuja before marching to President Buhari’s villa. The Nigerian Football Federation eventually paid the team two weeks after the protests began.
