Amuneke slams NFF over unpaid wages

22 July 2015, 10:09

Abuja - Nigeria U17 coach and former Nigeria international Emmanuel Amuneke has slammed the Nigeria Football Federation over non-payment of salaries due to him, after the NFF announced it had paid three months upfront, the salary of new Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh.

Amuneke, who is believed to be on a N1m monthly salary, claims he hasn’t been paid for several months, while questioning why the NFF have chosen to pay Oliseh, who earns N5m monthly, three months ahead without paying other national team coaches.

“The people that paid Oliseh decided to pay Oliseh,” Amuneke said in reference to Oliseh receiving three months’ salary upfront.

“But one thing they have to know is that there are other national team coaches working also that have not been paid.

“So if they owe other coaches and they pay Oliseh, I think it is not fair,” Amuneke said in a radio interview.

Speaking further, the former Barcelona winger said nobody should expect anything from him as he prepares the Nigeria U17 team for the FIFA U17 World Cup, since he is yet to be paid his salaries.

“Well nobody should expect anything from me since they haven’t paid me,” he added.

Amuneke was teammates with Oliseh for Nigeria in the ‘90’s.
