Francois Lusciuto has begged
to be paid at least part of what
the Nigeria Football Federation
(NFF) owe him in salaries for him
to proceed to Belgium for further
treatment after his surgery in
South Africa last month.
It was specially gathered that
the Belgian coach is owed five
months’ pay, which totals N10
million at N2million a month.
“The whiteman is really down
– his stomach problem, which
needed surgery in South Africa,
has persisted and he now wants
to fly to Belgium for better
treatment,” a top official disclosed.
“He has said he only needs his
salary for a month to do that and
he has written several mails to the
NFF, but sadly he has not received
any reply.”
Incidentally, Lusciuto was left
stranded in Lagos when the Super
Eagles returned from the 2016
CHAN in Rwanda and he had to
find his way back to his base in
Togo, where he lives with his wife.
