Nigerian international, Frank Onyeka has revealed that footballers do not get paid weekly wages as widely believed.
The Brentford midfielder said players usually receive their pay in form of salary at the end of the each month as against every week.
Onyeka made this known during an interview on Clout Africa’s ‘Reach Out’ podcast, noting that there were different stories they were told about how they receive remuneration.
