Players of the Super Eagles are yet to receive their match bonuses for the 2018 World Cup preliminary round qualifier against Swaziland over two months after, fcnaija.com can exclusively report.
The Super Eagles defeated the Sihlangu Semnikati 2-0 in the return leg of the World Cup qualifier in Port Harcourt on November 17 last year, but weren’t paid their $5,000 winning bonus as the NFF claimed they would no longer pay in cash, but would rather pay into the players’ domiciliary accounts.
Fcnaija.com can however report that the players are yet to receive the bonuses over two months after, with one of the players who featured in the win over Swaziland confirming this.
“We haven’t received our bonuses from the win over Swaziland because they (NFF) said they would pay into our accounts but I haven’t seen anything since then,” the player told fcnaija.com exclusively on the condition of anonymity.
Meanwhile, Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh seemed to confirm the player’s position as he revealed the players are still being owed.
“I am already getting phone calls from them (players) and they’re still asking about what they’re being owed,” Oliseh said.
Oliseh has also subtly attacked the NFF, by claiming his players were not financially motivated following their group stage exit from the CHAN tournament in Rwanda.
