I Earn N5 Million pension monthly as an Ex-English Player – John Fashanu
The ex-international star for England, John Fashanu reveals how much he earns as a pension monthly.
He berates the attitude at which the Nigerian football body treats its players by citing his own example.
He receives a total sum of 5 million naira each month for being a former player for England which is not the same for Nigerian footballers.
Nigeria must put in place attractive welfare packages for all former players of the national team, Fashanu expressed support for players like Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori who have decided to play for England and not Nigeria, their country of origin
“Tammy knows why he hasn’t played for the Super Eagles and it’s because there is more financial benefits playing for England, there is more glory and less wahala.
“Why do we ask the boy to play for Nigeria and torture him? We need to step up. Tammy is a massive miss for Nigeria. Nobody went to London to talk to him and explain to him the benefits of playing for his motherland.
