‘NFF Did Not Pay Complete Allowances’- Super Eagles Players Claim


Players of the Super Eagles, are claiming that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), did not give them complete payments as winning bonus for their 3-1 win over Algeria in a 2018 World Cup qualifier in Uyo.
The Federal Government had released funds to settle outstanding allowances of the Eagles and the Super Falcons, after the NFF was unable to pay them off.
Each Eagles player is entitled to $5,000, at the rate of N305 per dollar, which totals N1,525,000.
However, the players claim they have gotten N1million each, at the rate of N200.
They were reportedly paid N23million, instead of N35million.
“I got a million Naira as bonus for the win over Algeria, just what I got for the win over Tanzania,” One of the players told AfricanFootball.
“I was also told that the government released the money for both the wins over Zambia and Algeria, but we were only paid for one of them.”
“The NFF informed us that we will be paid in Naira for our home games due to a new government policy, but even at that we ought to be paid more than a million Naira because the official rate of the Naira to the dollar is 305 Naira and not 200 Naira,” added another aggrieved player.
