    Could it be that Sloane has Nigerian roots? Hmmm.

    Next question: That jersey above is extremely popular world wide. NFF’s share of global sales must have been substantial.
    WHERE IS THE MONEY?
    This money could have been used to pay players’ match bonuses, or even help fund the coach’s salary.
    For instance, in the US football league NFL, players receive 2/3 of jersey sales.
    TWO THIRDS!
    So what’s the deal with our own arrangement?
    Leon Balogun’s viral video complaining about unpaid match bonuses shows that it hurts the players and dampens their morale when bonuses they’ve earned are not paid. This surely contributes to the lacklustre performance we see from time to time from the SE.
    While players are expected to give their all on the pitch for the jersey, it is also important to demonstrate to the players that their efforts are valued by making prompt match bonus payments.
    It is only fair and right to pay players their due. They may be making millions at their clubs. But they have earned their match bonuses by playing for Nigeria as well.
    The money is there to pay, after all. From jersey sales, for one. We’ve not even talked about participation fees at tournaments, TV rights, match ticket sales, and government assistance.

    Pinnick and his gang of thieves never buy house finish for Dubai, London, South Africa and America you want make him use the money pay player’s bonus, you no dey serious. Pinnick no be American or European, I no no how you expect am to behave like one.

    Doing the right thing in not normal where we come from, that’s also something our people have a big problem with. And good example is not what our people emulate so pointing that out to them is like talking to bricks. The right thing would continue to not get done as long as we continue to have a system that makes it possible for clowns like Pinnick to keep on running our football affairs
