The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have opened up on news making the rounds in social media pertaining to the Federation owing Super Eagles Technical Adviser of his salaries. The Federation made this known in a statement on her official Twitter handle @thenff.
“The NFF wishes to put records straight with regards to a claim in the social media on Friday, 11th October, 2019 that the football house is owing Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, three (3) months salary”.
“As we speak, Mr. Rohr is only being owed salary for the month of September 2019, which is being processed”.
The NFF also seized the opportunity to throw more light into reasons why Super Falcons coach, Thomas Dennerby decided to resign from his duty.
“As for Mr. Thomas Dennerby, we have received his resignation letter and of course, he has his right to resign from a job.”
“Perhaps, one of the reasons he left was because we did not accede to his request to bring in more expatriate coaches and an indigenous coach who do not have the required licence.
If we had agreed to his request for more expatriate coaches, that would have left our indigenous coaches presently with the team in the lurch”.
Super Falcons failed to qualify for next year Tokyo Olympics football Tournament after Thomas Dennerby resignation with a 1-1 aggregate scoreline with Ivory coast thereby eliminating them from the qualifiers on away goals.
Super Eagles on the other hand will be playing an international friendly match with five (5) times World Champions, Brazil on Sunday, October 13, 2019 in Singapore.
