The Nigeria Football Federation recently made the decision to dismiss some backroom staff and slash the win bonus of the Eagles from $10,000 to $5,000 as part of their austerity measures.
The NFF have said they expect the African champions to bear with the federation after their bonus was slashed.
“I don’t see the players revolting. Players do not fix their bonus anywhere in the world, it is the job of the Federation,” said Emeka Inyama NFF executive spokesman.
“You would recall that we have been paying bonuses as at when due. It was because of the presidential committee (for the 2010 World Cup) that took the bonus to $10,000.
“The federation have always paid $5,000 after taking care of flight return tickets, daily allowances and accommodation. The $5,000 is ideal.”
The present condition of the NFF first donned on the staff and players that the money was in short supply, when it took several weeks to pay the win bonus of the victorious Eagles after beating Burkina Faso in the final match of AFCON 2013.
The Super Eagles will regroup on May 16 in Germany ahead of a forthcoming hectic schedule which would see them play Mexico in an international friendly on May 31 in the US, play in Kenya and Namibia in a World Cup qualifiers and also feature in the Confederations Cup.
