NFF Denies Owing Rohr Three Months Salary, Accepts Dennerby’s Resignation.

The Nigeria Football Federation have denied claim it is owing Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr three months salary.

Veteran journalist, Osasu Obayiuwana had tweeted on Thursday that the Franco-German hadn’t been paid in three months.

The NFF in a series of tweets on Thursday afternoon also provided updates on the resignation of Thomas Dennerby from his post as Super Falcons head manager.

” 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 months’ salary,”reads the tweet.

”As we speak, Mr. Rohr is only being owed salary for the month of September 2019, which is being
processed . As for Mr. Thomas Dennerby, we have received his resignation letter and of course, he has his right to resign from a job. 2/5

” We want to put it on record that no Head Coach in the history of the Super Falcons has been afforded the level and readiness of support that has been provided Mr. Dennerby by this Board.

“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 license.

“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.”

Rohr and the Super Eagles are presently in Singapore where they will play five-times World Champions Brazil in a friendly on Sunday at the Singapore National Stadium, Kallang.
