NFF must pay me N157m with interest – Rohr
August 3, 2022
Former Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, has said the Nigeria Football Federation will have to pay him his outstanding salary with interest along with the current dollar rate following their delay in making the payment.
The Franco-German was relieved of his job as the Eagles gaffer last December, following a series of underwhelming performances by the three-time African champions.
Despite moves by the NFF to pay his salary until the end of his contract, which should have expired in December, Rohr, the Eagles’ longest-serving coach took the case to world football body FIFA, demanding an additional £1m for breach of contract “without just cause” but FIFA instead approved $377,879.
A ruling by the FIFA players’ status chamber in May ordered the NFF to pay Rohr the money within 45 days, after ending his contract abruptly adding that the country’s football governing body will be sanctioned if Rohr is not paid in full within 45 days.
