Nigerians have called on the Nigeria Football Federation to slash the bonuses and allowances of Super Eagles players and coaching crew.
They wondered why the players, who recently staged a protest over unpaid bonuses in Egypt, ended up playing below expectations after being paid.
The fans complaints came after Nigeria lost Nigeria lost 2-0 to Madagascar at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday.
Lamenting Nigeria’s loss to the lowly-rated Madagascar, a fan Kingsley Ogar said, “The salary of Rohr should be slashed.”
Some fans argued that Eagles have lost their right to protest againstunpaid bonuses with the poor performance against Madagascar.
Ife Dayo said, “At least there won’t be any protest for win bonuses from the Super Eagles.”
“The Super Eagles strike better during bonus protests than in a football game,” Ivan Dougan added.
Demi Khay said, “The Super Eagles players boycotted the press conference before their second game against Guinea because of money, leaving only the coach to attend. Very unpatriotic; aside their allowance they got win bonus. Now playing this?”
Some commentators on social media also asked the NFF to sack Rohr, wondering why John Mikeland Ahmed Musa haven’t retired.
Gilles Grimandi said, “Retire Rohr with Mikel after the tournament. He cannot take us forward. Mikel should’ve been eased out after the World Cup. We have hungry players ready to make their mark, but this guy sucks the enjoyment from watching Nigeria.”
“Rohr’s refusal to punish the underperformance of some continues to undermine him. Ahmed Musa has had a poor tournament, but continues to be first pick when available,” Solace Chukwu added.
