    That is what l mean when l said that Victor Moses, who exited Nigeria National Team, was the basic reason why he was sacked from the Chelsea Club. Clubs, the World over, profits from their players participation in their respective National Teams.

  • Ezenwa that is always on the bench is now the one raking in such a large sum, some times you can’t really explain somethings

  • Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco shared $9.6m from their players that appeared in the world cup. Laid bare is the value in organizing and running a strong league. There is money in football, but only if it is run properly.

    Imagine $272k for each player that only lasts for the first round.

    Now if we had a league that was functioning (it has not been active since May and was supposed to start 1st of December but that date has passed and no news at all when it will start) we could attract massive investment into the league.

    That single $272k can pay ALL the players salaries in a club for the entire season, plus develop a youth squad, plus get them to every away match. Imagine the highest paid player earns N800k per year, $272k will pay 119 players that top salary for the entire season.

    Na we dey do ourselves

      Don’t say what you don’t know boy. who told you the highest earner earns 800k a year. I work in Eyimba fc as a junior finance officer. And I can speak with all honesty that before mfon udoh left us he was earning $1800 a month.

      • I believe you can still make your points or views @Jones (which are still arguable) without being derogatory with the “boy” reference. Do you know him from anywhere? Do you know if he’s actually the chairman of Enyimba FC, Anyansi Agwu? You don’t make a lot of contributions, but the few times you do, you just always have to insult others. As an admin staff with Enyimba, I expect more diplomacy and decorum from you when addressing issues in a public forum. Just a friendly piece of advice. By the way, where’s Mfon now?

      • Ok I made a mistake, it’ll be N800k per month (not per year) highest paid footballer in Nigeria

        But be respectful when you respond. There is a fifty per cent chance that I’m old enough to give birth to you. And I don’t throw thes this around lightly.

        Just because you were once a “finance officer” doesn’t mean that you can just use any language you like at people.

        I had finance officers working under me in the 1990s talk less today

        I’m not your boy

      • “Junior” finance officer self lololol.
        There is a 100% chance self.

        I watched the Green Eagles won their first African cup against Algeria in the final live before you were born.

        Oh how I wish I could use emojis here lol. I don’t think I have used “junior” in my job title for at least 25 years.

        Hahaha hahaha hahahaha

    I watched England beat Germany in the 1966 World Cup live so everybody here should respect their elders.
    As evidence, I can tell you categorically that the goal scored by Geoff Hurst crossed the line. Shame we didn’t have VAR back in those days.

    I was at the back of the post, so you all should respect your elders.

    I watched all the three matches in Birmingham at Aston Villa ground myself in those days . Germany & Argentina moved forward to Wembley from there. Folks should never underestimate the power of internet in this 21st centaury. To do so, is to demonstrate how backward one really is. It is like, you don’t underestimate the person who sit next to you in New York Subway. On personal level, l always assumes everybody is just like me and that everybody deserves that singular respect that l should expect for myself.

    Hay, if were in Birmingham in the early sixties , seventies and you, perhaps, live in Edgbaston, please, l would like to contact you and renew my relationship particularly if are an Edoman where l used attend Edo Union in Busehealth area in those days. You can call me @ US 973-672-5950 . (No pick up for unwanted call).
