Bonus Row: Pinnick – We Are Owing Super Eagles Coaches Not Players; Players Disagrees
President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Amaju Pinnick yesterday said the football house has cleared all outstanding bonuses they are owing players of the team.
Speaking on the sidelines of the unveiling of another sponsor, Pinnick said they are no longer owing the players backlog of bonuses with the bonuses for the last two games paid as well.
He said they are at the moment owing just the coaches of the team and they already have plans to start paying them later this week.
“For the Players, i can tell you as of today, we have paid their last two bonuses and we don’t seem to be owing any more and we are happy with that”, he revealed.
“Then with the coaches, I am also interfacing with our sponsors and I can tell by today or tomorrow, we will also clear them because we want everybody to be happy at this period, we cannot have any form of animosity whether internally or externally on the part of our team”, Pinnick stated
His claims have been refuted by a senior player in the team who sent a message to OwnGoalNigeria.com via twitter when contacted about the payment of their outstanding bonuses.
“ It’s a lie. We only received the bonus for the last two games. 1 million Naira for the home win and it’s equivalent in dollars for the away win. Maybe they are in the process of paying and it hasn’t got to me yet. For now even the players I asked said they are yet to be paid”, he said.
