Players of the home base team of Nigeria that defeated Benin Republic 2-0 to progress to the 2018 Africa Nations Championship had their win bonus slashed by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
Owngoalnigeria.com gathered from one of the players that they were told they will be paid $2,000 if they are able to beat Benin Republic but last night they received $600 after their win.
” We were told we will be paid N200,000 ( $600) not N700,000 ( $2,000) as earlier promised and agreed by the NFF. We can only grumble but we can’t do anything than accept it”, a player told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” They can’t treat the main Super Eagles like this, so this should inspire us to work hard and break into the main Super Eagles. The only painful thing is they didn’t consider us worthy enough to be informed ahead of time”.
