Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun calls out NFF over unpaid bonuses, poor administration

Super Eagles defender Leon Balogun has called out the Nigeria Football Federation over poor infrastructure and unpaid bonuses.  

He also lamented the inability of the nation’s Football association body to sort quality accommodation and pitches in Nigeria. 

Balogun expressed his grouse against Nigerian football administrators in an interview with “The Beautiful Game” podcast. 

“You hear about other players and why can’t they not perform in the Super Eagles. We have to be honest, the infrastructure, we are not being provided with the best minerals to do our job,” Balogun said. 

“It starts with pitches or it starts with accommodation but it goes on to pitches and all these kinds of things. 

“And as I said I’m always quite outspoken, probably I know if some people hear that they might come after me but I don’t care because that’s just how it is.” 

Balogun currently plays for Scottish side, Rangers. He made his Super Eagles in March 2014 and has played at the FIFA World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
