Balogun unhappy with NFF



SUPER Eagles defender, Leon Balogun has voiced his displeasure at the handling of issues by NFF.

  That issue and the deafening silence by the players was blown wide open on Wednesday by Leon Balogun in a Twitter message.

  The thorny issue before now has always been avoided by the players, who perhaps chose to tread cautiously, so as not to be witch-hunted for washing the dirty linen of the Amaju Pinnick-led NFF in public.

  However, Balogun, a key member of the Nigeria national team, has voiced out his resentment against the unpaid bonuses and other issues inhibiting the Super Eagles.

  Balogun, in an interview, touched on the poor infrastructure and many other avoidable distractions that rent the air once the team is particularly playing in the country.

  Super Eagles, over the years, no longer have a permanent base in Nigeria and often play their games in different cities. Balogun, who has 32 caps for Nigeria, is not pleased with that arrangement.

  “To be honest, the current Super Eagles squad have endured enough. They have shown understanding and sacrifice to represent. At a point where their flight ticket was downgraded to Economy because of NFF financial situation, they took the pains to use their money to upgrade.

  “You hear about other players, and… why can’t they not perform in the Super Eagles? We have to be honest, the infrastructure, we are not being provided with the best minerals to do our job,” the 33-year said.

  “It starts with pitches or it starts with accommodation but it goes on to pitches and all these kinds of things.
