Dailysportsok has gathered that the Super Eagles are planning to boycott this month’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sierra Leone following unpaid match bonuses.
It is reported that the Eagles are currently owed allowances and win bonuses for their 2021 AFCON qualifying matches against Benin Republic and Lesotho.
The players get $5000 for an away win and the equivalent in Naira for victory at home as gathered by DailySportsOk.
One of the France-based players told our correspondent that he won’t come for the game if they are not paid. In his words it read thus:
“It’s a shame how we are being treated by the country. The Federal Government is not giving the football federation the right support both financially and otherwise. At last year’s AFCON in Egypt, we had to stage a protest before the FG brought money to Egypt. It’s embarrassing. We don’t like the way government treats us despite all we do for the country,” he added.
