The Federation of International Football (FIFA) has ordered the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to pay former Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr’s $378,000 compensation as a result of the early termination of his contract.
The NFF terminated Rohr’s employment in December 2021 as a result of the Super Eagles’ underwhelming performance in the qualification for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Initially, Rohr’s contract with the NFF called for payment of his salary through December 2022.
The former Super Eagles coach informed football’s global governing body of an unreasonable contract violation by the Nigerian Football Association.
As a result of the FIFA panel’s determination that Rohr’s claim was “partially accepted in so far as it is acceptable,” he was granted $377,879.46 of the $1.2 million he had demanded. In accordance with FIFA’s ruling, the NFF would be subject to repercussions if Rohr’s compensation wasn’t paid in full within 45 days.
