*Debunks reports of part payment
The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has confirmed the payment of the $10,000 winning bonus promised to the Super Falcons on the eve of their final clash against the Banyana Banyana of South Africa, AOIFootball.com can authoritatively confirm.
Debunking reports making the rounds that the Falcons received part payments, an insinuation that the NFF doesn’t care about their welfare compared with their counterpart Super Eagles, the NFF’s Head of Women’s Football, Ruth David told AOIFootball.com authoritatively, that all outstanding debts have now been cleared, starting from the game against Gambia.
“I can confirm to you that the NFF has already paid all the players their bonuses; they got paid for the Gambia game already and also received the bonuses for winning the competition, so I don’t know where the news of the half payment is coming from.
“The President made a promise on behalf of the Federation and it has been fulfilled already,” Ruth David confirmed.
David further explained that only the AWCON qualifier against Gambia played in Lagos, is yet to be paid and it is because it is in ‘Naira’, but will be paid to each player’s account as soon as possible.
