Super Eagles’ debt settled ahead of Madagascar game. Nigeria’s camp was in dismay🙄 before their clash against the National Elephant as players protested unpaid bonuses. Now their bills have been settled.
With a few hours to Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) clash against Madagascar, Nigeria's national team players have been paid their outstanding bonuses and allowances.
The buildup to Wednesday’s clash with Guinea had suffered a setback as a bonus row grabbed the headlines, with players boycotting the pre-match conference and arrived late for training.
However, they received their entitlements on Saturday, after the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) granted the players’ wish of having the money in their accounts to cover their owed 22-day payments.
This has been the normal thing in Nigeria football. Players always protesting for unpaid wages, allowance and bonuses.
