JUST IN: Why Rohr may dump Super Eagles after Brazil clash

Super Eagles By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 12/10/2019

Why German tactician Gernot Rohr dumped Super Eagles after Sunday’s international friendly match against Brazil over outstanding three months' salary owe by the Nigeria Football Federation.

The football governing body led by Amaju Pinnick has earlier denied reports that they are owning the 66-year-old former Bordeaux coach three months wage and claimed that he is only being owed salary for the month of September 2019, which is being processed.

Rohr reportedly earns approximately 50,000 dollars every month (equivalent of N17.85 million in Nigerian currency) but veteran sports journalist, Osasu Obayiuwana broke the news on his Twitter handle Saturday morning.

"NEWS ALERT: Reliable information from Singapore indicates that Gernot Rohr COULD quit the @NGSuperEagles job, after the game against #SelecaoBrasileira. Rohr is infuriated that @thenff publicly denied the fact that he is being owed three months wages,” Obayiuwana tweeted.

Super Eagles game will take place on Sunday at the Singapore National Stadium. Kick-off is 1 pm Nigerian time.
