Bleak Christmas for Super Eagles coaches as NFF fails to pay salaries

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), faield to pay coaches and officials of the Super Eagles, as camp closed for Christmas break on Wednesday.
Last week, the Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung, urged the federation to pay all national team coaches their outstanding salaries and allowances, to ensure they enjoy the yuletide with their families.
However, the NFF failed to raise the money – believed to be around N30million – needed to offset the debts.

“We are going to see our families during this Christmas holiday without money,” one of the coaches told Complete Sports.

“It is so bad that we are being owed our salaries for months. It is all service to our fatherland, one will say, but if we don’t deliver, we’ll be fired.

“Well, they told us that we will be paid as soon as possible and we have no choice than to wait and see how it turns out.”

Some of the players and Sunday Oliseh’s foreign assistant stayed back in the Abuja camp.
