The Super Eagles of Nigeria camp was in dismay before their clash against the National Elephant as players protested unpaid bonuses. Now their bills have been settled
With a few hours to Sunday’s clash against Madagascar, the Eagles have been paid their outstanding bonuses and allowances.
The buildup to Wednesday’s clash with Guinea had suffered a setback as a bonus row grabbed the headlines, with players boycotting the pre-match conference and arrived late for training.
However, they received their entitlements on Saturday, after the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) granted the players’ wish of having the money in their accounts to cover their owed 22-day payments.
Also, the Super Eagles received bonuses for their victories over Burundi and Guinea.
Team’s spokesperson Toyin Ibitoye confirmed this development while clarifying money is not an inspiration for Gernot Rohr’s men.
