NFF Set to Increase National Team Coach’s Salary to $80,000 Monthly

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is gearing up to offer a substantial pay raise to the head coach of the national team.
According to reports from SportingLife, the NFF has committed to a monthly salary of $80,000 for the incoming coach, marking a notable increase from the compensation of previous head coach Jose Peseiro.
Peseiro, who recently parted ways with the Super Eagles, was earning a monthly salary of $50,000 following a reduction from his initial $70,000 contract.
Speculation has swirled that the Portuguese tactician’s departure was influenced by his request for a salary hike to $120,000 per month—a figure that exceeded the NFF’s final offer of $80,000.
As the search for a new head coach continues, the NFF’s readiness to enhance the remuneration package is expected to attract a wider pool of experienced candidates to the prestigious position, ensuring the national team receives top-notch leadership and guidance.
