Super Eagles Reject $2,500 Bonus

The Super Eagles are rejecting the $2,500 match bonus for the 1-1 draw they played with the Brave Warriors of Namibia on Wednesday, insisting that the new bonus regime is inappropriate and unacceptable.


Each player was initially getting $5,000 for a draw and $10,000 for a win before the restructuring in the remuneration package due to the poor financial status of the Nigeria Football Federation.

The players had rejected the $5,000 win bonus for beating Kenya in Nairobi last week.

The team were scheduled to leave for Brazil for the FIFA Confederations Cup on Thursday morning via South Africa but the players refused to leave their Namibia hotel for the airport.

They even refused to come down from their rooms for breakfast.

As at 10am, a team source feared they were likely to miss their flight to Johannesburg.
