Report: NFF Owing New Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr Three Months Salaries Worth Over $141,000

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is being owed for three months according to a new report.
Super Eagles Chief Coach Gernot Rohr is being owed three months salary by the Nigeria Football Federation.

The NFF have not paid the Franco-German coach for the past three months, according to a report by SCORENigeria.
“Rohr has not been paid for three months now. The NFF say they are broke,” SCORENigeria quoted a top official of the NFF.
Rohr earns $47,000 a month, totaling $141,000 for the three months he has reportedly not been paid.

The 63-year old signed to manage the Super Eagles in August 2016, signing an initial two-year deal to qualify Nigeria for next year’s World Cup, but his salaries have been shrouded in secrecy with speculations over who is bankrolling them and how much he is paid.

And according to the report, the NFF’s indebtedness to the Franco-German coach comes at a time when the federation have received in excess of $700,000 from various sources.

It is claimed that the NFF have received $500,000 from CAF for AFCON TV rights, $200,000 from FIFA, 145 million Naira from sponsors Guinness and 70 million Naira from govt allocation for February.

This will not be the first time the Glass House are owing a Super Eagles coach as former coaches, Stephen Keshi, Sunday Oliseh and Samson Siasia were owed at some point.
