A plan is underway by the Nigeria Football Federation to slash Super Eagles’ win-bonus henceforth. The plan which will be made public soon also has a code of conduct for the country’s top stars in order to enforce team discipline.
Each player was paid $10,000 for a win and $5,000 for a draw game. This was a carry-over of the playing conditions put in place by the Presidential task Force for the 2010 World Cup. But NFF president, Aminu Maigari, has disclosed that this will now have to change as efforts are now being geared towards restoring pride and discipline in the national team. “We have resolved to slash the match bonus of the players and their officials,” revealed Maigari, who equally admitted that the previous win-bonus rate was a heavy financial cross for his federation to bear. “Anyone who is not ready to accept the new rate should stay away as the NFF is not ready to compromise on this. We are also looking at a code of conduct for the team to check the indiscipline that was the bane of the team under Siasia.”
