No Policy On $10,000 Bonus For Super Eagles, NFF Says

NFF General Secretary, Musa Amadu,
By SR Sports

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has refuted claims of an existing policy to pay the sum of $10,000 as a win bonus to players of the Super Eagles, stressing today that there is no going back on the $5000 it is currently paying.

Speaking in Abuja, NFF General Secretary, Musa Amadu, debunked a statement to that effect made by the Chairman of Kano Pillars Football Club and former Special Assistant to the Director General of the National Sports Commission, Alhaji Abba Yola.

“We are surprised to read the statement by Alhaji Abba Yola,” Amadu said. “He was involved enough to know exactly what went on in the days of the Presidential Task Force. The task force had a meeting with the NFF and said they had agreed to increase the team’s win-bonus to $10,000, but that the NFF would only need to pay the normal $5,000 while the task force paid the balance of $5,000.”

He denied, however, that that agreement is “written or captured” as a policy of the federation.

“The present NFF administration came into office to meet the situation of $10,000 and with good intention, decided to continue paying the players that sum in order to motivate them,” he explained.  

He said that now that the NFF is “challenged” and needs cut its coat according to its cloth, there ought to be no hoopla over the slashing.

In his words, “When the NFF President and a couple of Members of Executive Committee met with the Management of Super Eagles over the matter, and craved their support over the constraints that we have at the moment, they expressed their understanding and that was why the NFF went ahead to implement.”

Amadu expressed disapproval of the tendency of commentators and even administrators to blame the NFF for the bonus row, saying that the federation has gone to great lengths to explain the situation and expects those who should show understanding to give a dispassionate opinion.

“Even at $5,000, the Super Eagles remain among the best-paid national teams in Africa. It is a decision of the NFF Executive Committee, taken after thorough deliberation, and we cannot go back on it no matter the amount of blackmail.”

Give these old pot bellied men boots so they can play for 9ja.

I guess the boys need to stage a Non appearance in their game against Spain so that FIFA can penalize Nigeria and everyone in Nigeria will know what kind of zombies we have administering our football. These criminals always want to slash someone else' pay and never think of slashing their own pay. Inflation and other economic vices cause prices to keep rising. I don't know what is wrong with maintaining the $10,000 win status quo. It's not like they are even making it such that the boys will wanna win at all cost like Win-10,000, draw-1,000 and lose $500. I pray that the SE will NOT show in their match against Spain. Let the world laugh at Nigeria's FA. Then after that let Musa Adamu and Aminu Maigari and their croonies pick football boots and go and play for Nigeria since they think it is that easy to play.

Spaniards are beatable

If we step up our game we will beat Spain. We have the defence and mid-field to hold them. Our defenders should not go forwards too much to become outside wingers. If our defence and mid-field stay tight behind our forwards the Spaniards cannot penetrate us.

The Spaniards cannot shoot and score goals outside the penalty area but relies much on walk in ball into the penalty area to score. The answer is to keep them out of our eighteen from where they invade like bees.

These Spaniards that succeed in the major international football tournaments rely much on heavenly help through the Christian shrines in their country. We could as well pray to the same God not to favour one of his sons more than the other but to let better skill prevail.

Our Super Eagles have the relative football skill. They can no doubt out dribble and out run the Spaniards and score against them. But with the present depletion by injury, let us hope we have got enough forwards left to do the job?

NFF fear GOD
