The President of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Amaju Pinnick in an interview on Arise TV explains that Super Eagles interim coach, Augustine Eguavoen will be entitled to only win bonuses as the Super Eagles progress to knock out stage at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon.
Eguavoen was appointed on a short-term deal after NFF sacked Gernot Rohr in December.
Rohr was Nigeria’s longest-serving manager after taking charge in August 2016 but had his contract terminated after leading the Eagles to the 2022 World Cup qualifying play-offs and sealing a spot at the Nations Cup in Cameroon.
“Eguavoen is on the payroll of the NFF and he won’t be entitled to salary for the role he is playing as an interim coach of the team,” Amaju Pinnick said
“He will be entitled to the winning bonuses as the team progresses at the tournament.”
Eguavoen won all the 3 opening matches at the ongoing AFCON, making him the first coach to do it twice history of Nigeria.
