There are indications that Super Eagles Senior Coach and Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, may call it quits with his Nigerian assignment, citing poor job welfare.
The German born coach is reportedly owed eight months’ salaries.
The Franco-German, who helped qualify the Eagles for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations, was last paid in February by his employers.
Rohr, who is reportedly paid $45,000 as monthly salary, pays the team’s video analyst, chief scout as well as fitness and goalkeeper trainers from his wages, it was learnt.
Our correspondent also gathered that Rohr’s delayed salaries would be paid in naira as stipulated in the new two-year contract extension he signed in 2020.
It was also learnt that Rohr’s backroom staffs (the team’s video analyst, chief scout as well as fitness and goalkeeper trainers) were yet to receive their bonuses for the win against Cape Verde – a delay which the Franco-German is unhappy about.
A team official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told PUNCH Sports Extra that they will get their outstanding bonuses after their games against Central African Republic.
“I don’t want to talk about that,” the source said when our correspondent asked if the Eagles backroom staff had received their bonuses.
