South Sudan interim Head Coach, Leo Andraa last week quit his post citing non-payment of his salary.

The Ugandan born tactician, was handed the job for two pending AFCON 2017 qualifiers after Lee Sung Jea who previously held postion for two years resigned, and his deputy Bilal Felix turned down an offer for the vacant post.

“They employed me for the two remaining Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers but I cannot work for a team that fails to pay me,” Adraa was quoted by BBC Sport.

Andraa’s first and last outing with the “Bright Stars” was a 3-0 thumping at home (Juba) in the hands of Mali in June in one of the remaining two AFCON qualifiers.

South Korean Lee left the team in March when South Sudan Football Federation (SSFF)’s financial woes deepened; his deputy Felix also claims he is owed by the Chabur Goc Alei lead body.
