Super Falcons star Asisat Oshoala revealed that some Nigerian footballers earn as little as 30,000 N a month.
The 25-year-old Barcelona star made the comment Saturday evening during a live Instagram chat with Channels Television, where she said it was happening because the government was not paying attention to women’s football in Nigeria.
While talking about how to improve women’s football in Nigeria, the former Arsenal player, among others, said that the leagues must be consistent in addition to paying more attention to the well-being of women footballers.
“The league has to be constant. They have to look into the welfare of the players. Some players get paid, maybe N30, 000, a month or maybe N60, 000 maximum and that’s like a lot. They need to be more concerned about the welfare of the players.”
Oshoala also said;
“I’d rather say: give us a standard coach for the next five years; and let the salary be constant and let the game bonus for my teammates be constant.
“And let us play a lot of friendly games as much as we can. And when we get to that level, we start discussing the next stage. It is something that has to be with a plan.”
