Head coach of the Nigeria senior national team Gernot Rohr has reacted to rumours making the round that he is yet to be paid by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), since he resumed as coach of the team two months ago.
German coach Rohr is reportedly on a salary of $47,000 (N18.6m), but rumours has it that the cash strapped NFF will struggle to pay the salary of the coach due to the economy problems in Nigeria.
Although the coach revealed in September that he is not bothered about being owed salary, as he is fully focused on qualifying Nigeria for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
It has now been revealed that he has not been paid since taking over the Super Eagles job two months ago, a report the manager played down during a chat with a journalist, Osasu Obayiuwana.
"Salary’s secondary. I am here to work. Even when it’s not coming immediately, I’m not hungry,” he said.
