“They will therefore free to work with the clubs when they are now with the national teams.

“We have to be realistic, we have been paying many people for many years without doing anything and the financial obligation caused by just salaries of the coaches is just too huge.

“There is one of the Eagles assistant coaches who has insisted he is owed over 18 million Naira from salaries and what have you over the years.”
