Why NFF Is Owing Players’ Match Bonuses – Gusau


The President, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Ibrahim Gusau has blamed their inability to pay national teams players bonuses on lack of sponsors.

Gusau made this known on Tuesday during the the Federation’s Peace Parley with the Federal House of Representative Committee on Sports.

He said, “I want to assure Nigerians that very soon they will see a lot of changes in the development of football so that a lot of sponsors will come back to us. All these issues of not paying match bonuses and the rest of it is because of sponsorship. By the grace of God, everything will be resolved and they (the committee) have agreed to work with us to see that we get to that destination.”

The Nigeria Football Federation admitted owing the Super Falcons, Super Eagles and Flying Eagles players.
