Arsenal legend, Ian Wright has urged the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, to pay the backlog of salary and bonuses arrears it owes players, coaches and staff of the Super Falcons.
SPORTGISTER recalls that Super Falcons Coach, Randy Waldrum has been at loggerheads with the NFF in recent weeks over different issues ranging from the team list for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, preparations and non-payment of salaries.
Reacting after Nigeria defeated co-hosts, Australia 3-2 at the ongoing FIFA Women’s World Cup on Thursday, Wright urged NFF to do the needful.
On his Twitter handle, he wrote, “Pay them!!!!!! @thenff.”
The Super Falcons will now take on the Republic of Ireland in their last Group B match next week. A win or draw will be enough for them to progress to the knockout stage if Canada beats Australia in the other last group game.
