NFF denies owing Rohr and Dennerby three months salary

The Nigerian Football Federation NFF on Friday denied the rumours making rounds that the body is owing expatriate coaches Gernot Rohr and Thomas Dennerby three months salaries.

Rohr is only owed salary for September while Dennerby has tendered his resignation letter, according to the NFF.

The Football body further disclosed that it gave Dennerby all the support he needed but they disagreed on his request to bring in more expatriate coaches which was one of the reasons why he resigned.

Below is the full statement released by the NFF,

NFF explains Rohr, Dennerby situations 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. 

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.

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.
