Super Falcons and Barcelona Femini star, Asisat Oshoala has voiced her displeasure during an interview about how some female footballers in Nigeria earn as low as N30000 monthly.
The 25-year-old 4-time African Women’s Player of the Year during an Instagram live chat with Channels Television on Saturday evening, stated that the reason this is happening because the government doesn’t give due attention to female football in Nigeria.
While speaking about how to improve female football in Nigeria, the former Arsenal player, among others, said the leagues have to be constant in addition to paying more attention to the welfare of the footballers.
“The league has to be constant. They have to look into the welfare of the players. Some players get paid, maybe N30000, a month or maybe N60000 maximum and that’s like a lot. They need to be more concerned about the welfare of the players.” the Nigerian international 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.”
