🇳🇬 Nigeria president confirms coach Eguavoen’s strange payment

Nigeria football always has its own ways, doesn’t it? The nation’s FA president Amaju Pinnick has confirmed interim coach Augustine Eguavoen was only paid in winning bonuses.

According to Pinnick’s revelation, coach Eguavoen is not receiving a salary, instead, he is only paid bonuses when he wins games.

"Eguavoen is on the payroll of the NFF and he won't be entitled to a salary for the role he is playing as an interim coach of the team," Pinnick said on Arise TV.

"He will be entitled to the winning bonuses as the team progresses at the tournament [2021 AFCON],” Pinnick added before Nigeria crashed out of AFCON 2021’s last 16 stage on Sunday night.

The Super Eagles lost 1-0 to Tunisia thanks to Youssef Msakni’s 47th-minute strike.

The West African giants are now looking ahead to facing Ghana in the final play-off match for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
