The Nigeria Football Federation is owing Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, eight months salaries.
The PUNCH reports that the 68-year-old who reportedly earns $45,000 (N18,511,340.31) on a monthly basis was last paid in February 2021 by the Amaju Pinnick-led NFF.
Rohr who qualified the Eagles for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations is said to be responsible for paying the team’s video analyst, chief scout as well as fitness and goalkeeper trainers from his wages.
Further reports revealed that the NFF is yet to pay Rohr’s backroom staff (the team’s video analyst, chief scout as well as fitness and goalkeeper trainers) their bonuses for the win against Cape Verde.
The Franco-German manager is reportedly unhappy about the development, one which was confirmed by a team official who said the outstanding bonuses will be paid after their games against the Central African Republic.
The source who spoke on conditions of anonymity said, “I don’t want to talk about that.
“We have a game to focus on and we hope that it will be sorted out after the games against Central African Republic.”
Nigeria begin their home and away encounter against CAR on Thursday at the Teslim Balogun stadium.
Rohr's men will head to Douala, Cameroon, three days later for the return leg, their fourth Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifying game.
