Nigeria Football Federation could announce the departure of Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr this week.
According to reports, both sides have reached an agreement to end his five years reign in charge of the team and all the necessary documents will be signed soon.
The media reported last week that the Franco-German tactician had been relieved from his duty, but the Nigeria Football Federation denied the reports but admitted they were looking at the possibilities.
The former Gabon coach still has 12 months on his $4500 monthly contract with he signed last year.
Rumors had it that, he could pocket close to N600 million, but NFF insider stated in a chat with Adepoju Tobi Samuel, and reported by Brila that the figures flying around aren’t true.
“I saw people quoting $3 million. I have also read the N600 million & N1 billion payoff figures.”
“There is no clause in Rohr’s contract that we will pay heavy compensation if his contract is terminated talkless of having any $2m or $3m compensation clause, this is false.”
“We are professional & respectful, we have worked with Rohr for five years. We are managing the negotiations between all parties. The discussion has been concluded.”
“We will sort out all documentation and make an official announcement this week. We have listed several options for the payoff. It will be in installment and the fee is not the outrageous figures in the media.”
“Will the NFF draft a contract & rope themselves into heavy compensation? We had strong negotiations.
In the new contract that we offered Rohr, he took a pay cut, agreed to reside in Nigeria & earned in Naira. How come people came up with the millions of dollars compensation?”
