“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.
The NFF on Friday debunked the claim that Rohr is yet to receive his wages for the past three months and insisted that they owe the Franco-German tactician one-month stipend.
“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,” reads the tweet on the NFF’s Twitter handle on Friday.
”As we speak, Mr. Rohr is only being owed salary for the month of September 2019, which is being processed.”
