*He has not been paid in 2017!
Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is owing the head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, for three months.
Rohr has not been paid for the first three months of 2017. He is reportedly on a $45,000 monthly salary.
A source in the Glass House told www.gongnews.net that other national team coaches are also being owed too. Some of the coaches are owed as much as five to eight months. The finances of the NFF has not yet improved.
“Rohr has not been paid for three months now. And there are outstanding salaries and allowances due to other national team coaches,” the source said.
NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, also confirmed that the federation is broke, but insisted they were working towards offsetting the arrears.
“The NFF is broke. But there are modalities on ground to offset the coaches and outstanding incurred by the federation,” Pinnick said.
Rohr signed a two-year deal with the NFF in August 2016. Pinnick said at the time that the German’s salaries would be borne by an unidentified sponsor.
With or without sponsor, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has a well known reputation for owing her employee backlog of salaries and allowances. For instance, late coaches Stephen Keshi and Shaibu Amodu are still being owed long after their deaths.
