Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr has denied reports circulating in the media that the Nigeria Football Federation must pay him $1m if he’s sacked, so says Brila.
After Nigeria finished third in 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt, there were reports in the media that the NFF isn’t happy with the performance of the Super Eagles, but were held back from axing Rohr due to a $1m settlement in his contract.
The former Burkina Faso boss signed for Nigeria back in 2017 and his current contract will not expire until June 2020, but Rohr insists that the Amaju Pinnick-led NFF board has the power to fire him and added that the buy out clause in his contract is far below $1m.
”I was shocked when I read that the NFF can’t part ways with me if they are no longer satisfied with my services because of the $1m buy out clause in my contract which is not true.
“The NFF has the right to ask me to go and I have the right to say am done with the Super Eagles job.”
Meanwhile, the Franco-German tactician has failed to rule out dumping the Super Eagles after confirming he has gotten offers from various African countries.
