Super Eagle stars are getting set to clash against the Nigerian Football Federation after NFF president Amaju Pinnick revealed that they would be paid their bonuses in Naira.
This move has been rejected by the Super Eagles in the past as they stand to lose if they are paid in Naira due to the foreign exchange rates.
The players were paid their allowances in dollars when they traveled to Singapore for the friendly against Brazil in October 2019.
“The players when they play in Nigeria, their bonuses have been in Naira,” Pinnick told Channels Television.
“When they play abroad they’ll be paid in dollars but that I won’t tell you because we are going to take so many difficult discussions that will go across board because we need to promote our fiscal policy.
“If the government is saying that we need to strengthen our Naira we shouldn’t be paying dollars. We are are integral part of the government.”
Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr was not left out as one the clauses in his new contract is he would be paid in the local currency.
