NFF says no agreement with NNPC to pay new Super Eagles coach

13 July 2016, 16:39Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The Nigeria Football Federation has refuted a story in some sections of the media that the Federation has secured the sum of $1.5 million from the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation as sponsorship for salaries of the incoming Super Eagles Head Coach.

Chairman of the NFF Media and Publicity Committee, Suleiman Yahaya-Kwande, said: “The story is the figment of the imagination of the writers. Nobody in the NFF or NNPC discussed the matter of salary of Eagles Coach and there is no iota of truth in it.

“Of course, we would be happy if the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation can come into Nigeria football, as we are trying to attract more corporate bodies into the Nigeria game. But there has been no discussion between NFF and the NNPC over payment of the new Super Eagles Head Coach or technical crew.”
