Former Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, stated that the Nigeria Football Federation would 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 N155m as of December 2021 and N157m at the current official dollar to naira rate.
