Exclusive – Ex Super Eagles Coach Rohr Denied Entry Into Nigeria, Unable To Claim Outstanding Salaries
Former coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has been paid the five months salary he is owed by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), OwnGoalNigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
The coach was paid the amount in Naira to clear off the backlog he is owed into his Nigerian account but he has been unable to gain entry into Nigeria as his work permit has expired plus he doesn’t have a visa.
It means he hasn’t been able to sort the issue out and sources close to the coach revealed he is bitter over the decision of the NFF to pay the money into his Nigerian account.
” They paid the money into his Nigerian account. He can’t access it unless he comes to Nigeria and he can’t come to Nigeria because he has no work permit or a visa to enable him do so. He is unhappy over the entire issue but it’s the NFF hence he isn’t surprised”, he told OwnGoalNigeria.com.
Rohr according to our source is still entitled to one year of his salary per the terms of his contract as it was terminated with no just cause judging by the fact that he met all of the clauses in the deal.
“Apparently the NFF are trying to avoid paying him the remainder of his salary as stated in his contract. It’s something that they can’t win as it is written”, he concluded.
