NFF to stop paying players in dollars


The President of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Amaju Pinnick has declared that Super Eagles players will no longer be paid their match bonuses and allowances in foreign currency, the SportsBay reports.

He stated this on Monday while declaring that the players will now be paid in Naira just as the NFF is promoting the need to change certain policy to help the currency has more value.

This is a followup of the recent announcement that  Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr will be paid in Naira if his contract which ends in June 2020 must be extended. 

“The players, the way they play in Nigeria. Their bonus have always been paid in Naira. But when they play abroad they were paid in Dollar.” Pinnick said on Channels TV.

“But that can even change. This time, we need to take many drastic decision that will go across board to promote our Fiscal policy.”

NFF last week, included three conditions which the Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr must accept for extension of his contract.

The three conditions includes, Rohr must leave in Nigeria, receives his salary in naira and monitor the progress and performance of the home based players in the Nigerian leagues for national team invitation.
