Former Super Eagles Coach Rohr Takes Nigeria To FIFA, Demands $1million

Rohr, the former coach of the Super Eagles, has filed a complaint with FIFA, demanding $1 million from Nigeria, BBC Africa reports.

Gernot Rohr, the former coach of the Nigerian national team, has taken the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to FIFA for a judgement on a $1 million compensation claim for unfair dismissal.

The German-born coach was fired in December, only weeks before Cameroon hosted the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

Gernot Rohr has coached the Super Eagles since August 2016, making him the longest-serving coach in the team’s history.

The Nigerian Football Federation agreed to pay him a salary until the end of his contract, which expires in December 2022, before he was fired. He appealed to the world’s governing organization, requesting additional money as compensation.

The NFF disputed the petition, and a FIFA panel investigating Rohr’s claim for damages finished last week.

Unfortunately, no party has yet to get a decision.
