The Nigeria Football Federation is set to reconsider the payment structure for the Super Eagles.
Technical director of the NFF, Bitrus Bewerang explains that plans are currently ongoing to reexamine the template for paying Super Eagles stars’ match bonuses.
“The present NFF started the policy of paying players a percentage of tournament bonuses during the 2018 FIFA World Cup just to motivate them, outside their bonuses and allowances,” Bewerang stated.
“We did not pay any bonus for the 2021 AFCON qualifying matches against Benin Republic and Lesotho because we are in the process of negotiating with the players on a new template of bonus payments based on performance after qualification for championships. This is still being discussed.”
Nigeria won the bronze medal at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
