Top NFF officials promise Flying Eagles players payment of allowances on arrival

| |

The Nigerian Football Federation have waded into the Flying Eagles protest over the non-payment of their camp allowances and bonuses.

The Nigeria U-20 side have been asked to leave the hotel rooms by FIFA but the players have insisted they won’t move an inch until they have been paid.

Top NFF officials have pleaded with the team to fly out, promising they will be paid on arrival.

“We don’t believe these officials because they have not been telling us the truth and they have not been fair with us,” insisted one of the players.

The players who were sent back home after they were dropped in Germany were sent off with a paltry $100 each.

The team were originally to have flown out of Poland by 3am, but the players have stayed put at their hotel.

The next possible flight out for the bulk of the squad will be 12 noon.

The deadline for eliminated teams to quit their hotels has since ran out and the team will now have to take care of themselves as FIFA will no longer do so.

The Nigeria U20s crashed out Monday night at the Round of 16 of the 2019 U20 World Cup when they lost 2-1 to Senegal.
