The Nigerian Super Eagles' failure to qualify for the African Cup of Nations didn't only shatter countless emotions but also cost the federation millions in potential income.
In view of this, the Aminu Maigari-led Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have decided to slash the players' bonuses. This decision however would be communicated to the players by their new coach.
"We have resolved to slash the match bonus of the players because of the huge bills the federation incurs after every match,"Maigari stated.
Maigari also revealed that the cost of servicing the $10, 000 paid to the team as winning bonuses and half of that for a draw was becoming a burden.
