Secretary General of the Nigeria Football Federation, Mohammed Sanusi, has admitted that the federation was owing the late Shuaibu Amodu two months’ salary.

Peterside Idah, a former Super Eagles goalkeeper, had alleged that the federation owed the late coach close to seven months wages.

Idah claimed he received a call from the late Super Eagles coach, intimating him of his backlog of unpaid salaries.

But the NFF scribe on Monday said Amodu like other management staff are owed only two months wages, and that the NFF would pay all monies due late Amodu to his family.

Shuaibu, who had coached BCC Lions, El-Kanemi Warriors, Shooting Stars and Orlando Pirates, died in his sleep in the early hours of Saturday, after complaining of chest pains on Friday night.

Family sources said he was hypertensive, and had rejected the Super Eagles’ coaching job in February on this ground.
