Nff claims they extorted national football team.

The country’s football body for underpaying Gernot Rohr’s men after they silenced Algeria 3-1 in November’s 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifier, but the NFF has moved to dismiss the allegation – with Super Eagles’ team administrator, Dayo Enebi stating the news was a trumped-up story.Enebi told Nff  that the report is a fabrication, the estimate we sent to the government was for the sum of N1million for each player for a win. “It was also at that meeting that the NFF told them they would no longer be paid in dollars for home matches, and that the win bonus for home match was a flat rate of N1million. The meeting took place at Kaduna. “It was based on this that the players were paid the sum of N500,000 each for the draw against Egypt in Kaduna (2017 Cup of Nations qualifier, March 2016) and the sum of N1million each for the win against Tanzania in Uyo (2017 Cup of Nations qualifier, September 2016). Their camp allowance has also been paid in naira (N50,000 per day) since March 2016.” “The NFF has not shortchanged the players,” he continued. “The match against Algeria was a home match.Whenever the win bonus for the match against Zambia in Ndola is being paid, it would be $5,000 per player at the official rate that obtained at the time the match was played.”Nigeria top Group B with six points, and will host Cameroon in their next game on August 28, 2017.
