Following the Super Eagles’ match bonus row that had them arrive at the 2013 Fifa Confederations Cup behind schedule, a committee to probe into the ugly incident has recommended the win bonus for the team be pegged at $5,000 per man.
The committee, which also recommends that a formal code of conduct be signed by all players in the national team, is expected to present its findings to the Sports Minister Bolaji Abdulahi next week, as revealed by MTNFootball.com.
The code of conduct to be introduced to the Eagles will explicate the norms and required attitude expected of both players and the NFF.
“The players are expected to sign the code of conduct or else quit the team,” an official informed MTNFootball.com.
Reports gathered indicate that the NFF had introduced a code of conduct before, precisely in 1994, when only a few members of the then Mutiu Adepoju-headed squad agreed to sign the document.
The practice is presently in existence in countries like Germany and England, where players agree to abide by a rule book, inasmuch as several national team coaches have kicked against it.
