The President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has revealed that Zenith Bank will pay the salary of Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, for a year.
Oliseh took over the national team in July, on a deal that ensures he reportedly earns N5million a month.
“Zenith Bank have undertaken to pay Oliseh’s salary for a year. This will take a lot of burden off the federation,” Pinnick said.
“The bank has also sponsored the country’s top referees for refresher courses in London.”
Cash-strapped NFF have in the past struggled to pay the national team coaches.
