Age grade teams: SWAN condemns NFF over stoppage of match bonuses

The Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) has condemned the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) over the stoppage of match bonuses for the national age-grade teams, reports ITRealms.

This is coming as SWAN applauded NFF for contracting Coach Samson Siasia as the new Super Eagles headsman to stand in for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixtures against Egypt at the wake of the resignation of Sunday Oliseh.

“Congress deemed this as a move that will repose confidence and trust in indigenous coaches,” SWAN said through its communique at the end of 2016 first congress made available to ITRealms.

Equally, SWAN vehemently flayed the lack of continuity in sports administration and proposed that individuals with prerequisite skills and knowledge be appointed and elected into strategic sporting positions.

Leaving NFF with a knock on its recent policy to stop paying match bonuses to all national age-grade teams, SWAN said it should be condemned in the strongest term as it is capable of discouraging players from giving their best when called to represent the country.
