Sources claim Super Eagles players have been paid their outstanding bonuses and allowances ahead of today’s Group B clash against the Barea of Madagascar.

Correspondent Adejayan Gbenga Gsong had reported last week that the buildup to Wednesday’s clash with Guinea suffered a setback as a bonus row hogged the headlines, with players boycotting the pre-match conference and arriving late for training.

However, they received their entitlements on Saturday, after the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) granted the players’ wish of having the money in their accounts to cover their owed 22-day payments.

Also, the Super Eagles received bonuses for their wins over the Swallows of Burundi and the Syli Nationale of Guinea.

Unpaid bonuses are not new in Nigerian football. First, the Nigeria U-20 team embarked on a sit-in protest and refused to leave Poland after their elimination from the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Recently, the Nigeria women’s senior national team – the Super Falcons, who were knocked out of the Women’s World Cup in France, refused to leave their hotel until all outstanding bonuses were paid – a claim the NFF denied, insisting Thomas Dennerby’s ladies were not owed.

Man Utd threaten to walk away from deal for Sancho

Published

on

Manchester United are on the verge of walking away from a deal for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho, the UK Mirror reports.

The Bundesliga club is refusing to lower their £110m valuation of Sancho, with United executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, not willing to pay above £80m.

It was believed the two teams would meet somewhere in the middle, with negotiations over staggered payments also an option.

But after failing to come to an agreement, the deal looks to be on the brink of collapse.

United may even consider returning next summer for Sancho, while looking at cheaper options this year.

The Red Devils believe paying anything more than £100m is ‘unrealistic’, given the current financial situation caused by COVID-19, and feel Dortmund are being unreasonable with their demands.

Fulham beat Brentford 2-1 in the Championship play-off final to secure an immediate return to the Premier League thanks to two extra-time goals from Joe Bryan.

The left-back caught Brentford goalkeeper David Raya off guard from 40 yards in the 105th minute of the game at Wembley, with the Spaniard expecting a cross and then unable to scamper back and save Bryan’s skidding low effort.

With Brentford pouring forward in search of an equaliser, Bryan burst forward and combined with Aleksandar Mitrovic before stabbing past Raya to make the game safe with three minutes remaining.

Henrik Dalsgaard pulled a goal back with a header from eight yards out in the fourth minute of added time, but it was too late for the Bees to spark a comeback.

Before Tuesday’s game, since the 1990/1991 season, Brentford have lost in all of their play-off campaigns.

The last time they played in the English top flight was way back in 1947.

With this, Fulham will now join Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion in earning promotion from England’s second tier to the EPL.

Sancho’s wages are also a sticking point, with United determined not to upset their wage structure for a player so young.

Suggestions that personal terms worth £250,000-a-week had already agreed are believed to be premature.
