Super Eagles paid 2018 World Cup bonuses, Oliseh to receive $30,000



Players of the Nigerian national team have already been paid their bonuses for the 2018 World Cup, the President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has confirmed.
In November, the NFF signed an agreement with the players on a pay structure for bonuses, allowances and a share of the income from participation at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Under the agreement, the players were to be paid their qualification bonuses and share of the FIFA income in advance and are also due 30% of the NFF’s appearance fee from FIFA, which amounts to $2.8million.

FIFA made an advance payment of $2 million, while the NFF say they raised $800,000 from sponsorship.

Each player got $10,000 per World Cup qualifying game, while head coach Gernot Rohr will be paid $15,000 per game and his assistants get $10,000 per game.

Officials told KweséESPN that the payments also included all players and coaches who participated in the qualifiers.

That means Sunday Oliseh, who was in charge for two games, will be paid $30,000, although an official confirmed that that payment, along with some players not on the squad, are still being processed.

Itis expected to be completed within the week, before the players travel to Russia.
