Eguavoen will be entitled to bonuses only, not salary
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.
He was appointed on a short-term deal after the Nigeria Football Federation 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.
The Franco-German also led Nigeria to the 2018 World Cup and guided the team to third-place at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Augustine was appointed on a short-term deal after the Nigeria Football Federation sacked Gernot Rohr in December.
“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,” President of the NFF Amaju Pinnick stated recently on Arise TV.
“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.
