Why we can’t pay Falcons same wage as Eagles – NFF

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has given reasons why it might be difficult for Nigeria to pay the Super Falcons the same wage as their male counterparts, the Super Eagles, the reports.

It will be noted that the Brazilian Football Confederation and the English FA had announced equal pay for both male and female players, prompting calls by some football-loving Nigerians to the NFF to do the same.

CBF president, Rogerio Caboclo, had announced on Wednesday that Brazil’s men and women’s national teams would be paid equally while the English FA on Thursday revealed that its women’s senior team players were paid the same match fees with their male counterparts since January.

Pinnick according to Guardian said that he does not want to be dragged into such issue for now saying. “I don’t want to join in such debate concerning equal payment of wages for both male and female players for now.

“Those agitating for such payment should know that Nigeria football is different from Brazil and England. So, count us out of it. That is all I have to say,” he said.
