Golden Eaglets Coach, Emmanuel Amuneke, has made it clear that the team will not perform magic at the forthcoming FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile due to the nonpayment of his salaries by the Nigeria Football Federation.

Amuneke, who has been in camp with the team at the FIFA Goal Project in Abuja, claimed that he’s not been paid for some months and was shocked with the decision of the Glass House to pay Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh,  N5m in advance.



“The people that paid Oliseh decided to pay Oliseh,” Amuneke said in reference to Oliseh receiving three months’ salary upfront.

“But one thing they have to know is that there are other national team coaches working also that have not been paid.

“So if they owe other coaches and they pay Oliseh, I think it is not fair,” Amuneke said in a radio interview.

The former Barcelona winger said nobody should expect anything from him as he prepares the U17 team for the FIFA U17 World Cup, since he is yet to be paid his salaries.

“Well nobody should expect anything from me since they haven’t paid me,” he added.

Amuneke was teammates with Oliseh for Nigeria in the ‘90’s.
