Amid Super Eagles goalkeeper, John Noble’s recent revelation that he is yet to receive his African Cup of Nations (AFCON) match bonuses a month after his mates received theirs, another revelation has surfaced.
Former Nigeria footballer, Duke Udi has opened up on what happened during his time with the team.
According to the Ex-Super Eagles player, he, alongside his teammates were asked to sign papers of $20,000 paid but were actually given 800,000 Naira.
“It has happened to me with the national team. I was called into an office and I saw my mates signing papers of $20,000 payment, but was given 800,000 Naira cash,” Udi told Brila FM.
Players and coach of Super Eagles, Jose Peseiro have recently complained about being owed their salaries and bonuses.
He added: “It was painful to see but I couldn’t do anything about it, so I can relate to what the young man (John Noble) is going through.
“It’s really unfair and I will urge the Nigeria Football Federation to do sometimes about it. He’s part of the team and should get paid.”
The three-time African Champions failed to qualify for the just concluded FIFA World Cup in Qatar and will now shift its focus on qualifying for the next AFCON amidst the current financial issues bedeviling the team.
