The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) says delays in paying the salaries of coaches are ‘short-term’ issues.
It admits that Super Eagles Manager, Gernot Rohr, has only received a portion of his salary for 2019.
NFF Vice-President, Shehu Dikko, confirmed there had been a delay to wage payments, claiming sponsors have been left embarrassed by negative reports and interference from Government Agencies which he says is blighting the football authority.
Pay rows have often surrounded Nigerian teams with coaches not paid regularly, while players have previously boycotted training during important qualifiers or at major tournaments over unpaid bonus.
Nigeria, the three-time African Champions, will play in group b at next month’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt alongside Guinea, Madagascar and Burundi.
