Ahmed Musa who spoke ahead of their last group match against Madgascar on Sunday (today), revealed that the NFF are yet to pay Eagles outstanding bonuses.
Recall that the players had shunned a pre-match press conference and were late for their final training session ahead of Wednesday’s 1-0 win over Guinea, in protest over owed bonuses, before they were promised payment by the NFF. However the recent disclosure by Ahmed Musa comes as a shock, as it was alleged that the Federal Government intervened in the row, by sending funds to Egypt for the payment of the players’ allowances. Speaking at a press conference, the Al Nassr forward said;
“The spirit is good in camp and we are ready to play tomorrow (today). We have put the disagreement about bonuses behind us, we spoke amongst ourselves. I don’t know what the NFF has planned, but we will do our job. They are yet to pay the team’s outstanding bonuses. The governments all over Africa need to do better with financing teams for international competitions.”
