The Super Eagles haven’t received their match bonuses since the beginning of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, while the coaches haven’t been paid for months.
Although that hasn’t stopped the players from fulfilling their duties, Rangers star Leon Balogun recently complained about the Federation’s treatment of the players and coaches.
Meanwhile, the NFF has also signed deals with MTN as the official communication partner of the national teams, while Airpeace is now the airline carrier for the national teams.
