With five months down the line after Super Eagles unenviable performance at 2018 Russia World Cup, it has emerged that the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, is yet to pay the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr his World Cup qualification match bonuses.
A close and competent sources to the Eagles handler revealed to BSN Sports that the Coach has been keeping quiet all these while in order not to rock the boat as well as not to be seen to be rubbishing the administration of the NFF headed by his friend, Amaju Pinnick.
According to the online paper quoting source, “Let me be very honest with you, Gernot Rohr is very broke and not happy that the NFF has not paid his 2018 World Cup qualification bonus barely a year after leading the team to qualify for the competition that was held in Russia in June this year.
“What pained him more is the fact that virtually everybody associated with the Super Eagles players that contributed to the qualification, other coaches and members of the backroom staff of the team have all been paid except him (Rohr).
“What makes the matter worst is the fact that the NFF has allegedly further breached the contractual agreement signed by Rohr by also failing to pay his two months outstanding salaries of October and November 2018 as wee speak.
“You know that there is no ‘Oyinbo’ (white man) that jokes with his salary. As we speak the Nigeria Football Federation has also not paid him (Rohr) his October and November 2018 salaries unlike what was being reported in the media that his three months salaries up till December 2018 have been paid up to date”, the source further clarified.
