The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has slashed coaches’ salary arrears. The football house has persuaded coaches still in contract to collect half of their entitlements while some others are to forfeit 30%, Sports Vanguard reports.
Most of the coaches involved expressed displeasure at the development but have said it is better to accept the offer than lose all. A source in the football house said the cuts would make it easier to offset the backlog of salaries following the five-year contract with AITEO Group.
Some of the affected coaches who have already stormed the NFF for the reconciliation include: Super Eagles chief coach Salisu Yusuf, goalkeeper trainer Aloy Agu, U-17 coach Manu Garba as well as U-20 goalkeeper trainer Emeka Amadi, Super Falcons goalkeeper trainer Ann Echejile, former Flying Eagles coach John Obuh.
