The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has come out strongly to deny reports of a salary advance embedded in the contract of Super Eagles' new Head Coach, Samson Siasia. 'There is nowhere it is stated in the contract that the NFF would pay Mr Samson Siasia any salary advance,' stated NFF's Acting General Secretary, Barrister Musa Amadu.

'People should stop speculating and look through the contract. The Clause 6.1 that people are talking about states that the NFF should pay Siasia his salary (of the sum of N5million) on or before the last day of every month. Nothing more,' he added.

There have been widespread speculation and rumours of a salary advance due for the former Under-20 and Under-23 national team handler, who was unveiled as the new head coach of the senior national team at a colourful ceremony in Abuja on December 1.
