FIFA Orders NFF To Pay Rohr $380,000, Threatens To Sanction Nigeria

FIFA has ordered the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), to pay former head coach of the national team, Gernot Rohr, the sum of $380,000.

The money is compensation for Rohr, who the NFF sacked as Super Eagles handler in November 2021.

The German was dismissed after five years in charge, with Augustine Eguavoen brought in as an interim replacement.

Rohr took his case to FIFA to demand £1million for breach of contract.

However, the 68-year-old was granted $377,879.46 after a FIFA tribunal decided his claim was “partially accepted insofar as it is admissible”.

The ruling also stated that the NFF would be sanctioned if Rohr is not paid in full within 45 days.
