A top official of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has confirmed reports making rounds that the coach of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr is being owed three months salary by the football house.
Rohr joined Nigeria in August on a salary reportedly worth $47,000 a month, but the Franco-German coach has only being paid two months salary since taking over the team.
However, the NFF official who confirmed the news of Rohr being owed salary said the coach is pre occupied with preparations for the upcoming AFCON 2019 qualifiers and the resumption of the World Cup 2018 qualifiers in September.
” We are owing Rohr, but for now the coach is focused on the job at hands, because he trust the NFF will pay him as soon as cash is available. He is not entirely new to situations like this”, he told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” When he managed the national team of Niger Republic, Gabon and Burkina Faso, he witnessed same issues but he eventually got paid. We (NFF) are not happy but some situations are best managed due to issues beyond our control”.
