NFF: We have paid Oliseh’s salary

27 February 2016, 13:01Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The Nigeria Football Federation says it has paid former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh his salary days before his resignation.

Oliseh resigned on Friday, seven months in the position after his appointment in July 2015. Announcing his resignation on twitter, the former Super Eagles captain said he took the decision “due to Contract violations, lack of Support, Unpaid wages, Benefits to my players, Asst. Coaches & myself.”

But the NFF in a statement insisted that the former Super Eagles captain has been paid.

“Contrary to claims by Oliseh that he was being owed wages and did not receive support from the NFF, top officials confirmed that he was this week paid the sum of N20 million, being salaries for three months (December 2015, January 2016 and February 2016) and half-year rent for July-December 2015. He was signed on in July 2015.”

“The only money he is owed is the bonus for the World Cup qualifier against Swaziland in Port Harcourt in November 2015, which the NFF had promised to pay players and officials on resumption of camping for the matches against Egypt.”

Oliseh has since been replaced with Samson Siasia ahead of the 2017 AFCON qualifier double fixture against Egypt in March.
