Super Eagles lament non payment of match bonus, allowance

20 January 2016, 18:31

Kigali - Players of the home based Super Eagles, who are currently participating at the African Nations Championship have lamented the non-payment of match bonus and camp allowance since December.

The players, all drawn from the Nigeria Premier League are still suffering the same fate in their various club sides back home.

After beating Niger 4-1 in their opening games at the ongoing CHAN tournament, the League Management Company (LMC), operators of the Nigeria Professional Football League handed a cash gift of $10 000 to the 23 players and officials in Kigali.

But the players debunked reports of receiving $2,000 match bonus, and claimed that since they resume camp in Abuja in December, they are yet to be paid any money, according to Goal.

Media Officer of the Super Eagles Toyin Ibitoye however said the Minister of Youth and Sports Solomon Dalung, who watched the game against Niger from the stands in Kigali, has appealed to the players to be patient as the budget for the tournament has been approved, and they will be paid soon.
