Super Eagles Coach Owed Six Months Salary

The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, is reportedly owing Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro for the past six months.

According to a new revelation by renowned sports journalist, who is also a former member of the Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) anti-racism task force, the salary owed Peseiro is $420,000 in total.

Recall that the 62-year-old tactician was appointed in May 2022 on a monthly pay of $70,000 but ever since then he hasn’t been paid according to Obayiwana.

 The revelation is all the more startling as the NFF are currently still trying to pay off the backlog of outstanding salaries owed to former Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr after unilaterally terminating his contract last December.

Obayiwana added that Peseiro has already complained to FIFA about his unpaid wages and under FIFA laws, the former Venezuela and Saudi Arabia coach can unilaterally terminate his contract, without prejudice, and will have to be paid in full.
