NFF to appeal FIFA ruling on Gernot Rohr’s $378k compensation

The President of Nigeria Football Federation Amaju Pinnick has disclosed that the Federation is contemplating of appealing the FIFA ruling to compensate former Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr for his sacking.

The World Football Governing Body ordered the Nigerian FA to pay Rohr who was dismissed last November a sum of $377,879.46 as compensation.

FIFA also gave the NFF 45-days to make the payment or they’ll face a possible sanction.

Reacting to the ruling, Pinnick said the NFF might appeal the decision.

“FIFA declined most of his (Rohr’s) requests and said we should pay him $377,879.46 because we paid him six months in lieu.

“We are still debating whether to go to CAS and tell them to convert that money we paid him to what FIFA wants us to pay him.” Pinnick was qouted by Punch.

Recall that Rohr was sacked, despite leading the Super Eagles to the African Cup of Nations and the final round of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The Franco-German tactician later dragged the NFF to FIFA— seeking $1m as compensation for unfairly dismissal.
