Super Eagles head Gernot Rohr has denied reports circulating in the media that the Nigeria Football Federation must pay him $1m if he’s sacked.
After the Super Eagles finished third in just concluded African Cup of Nations in Egypt, there were reports in the local media that the Nigerian football governing body isn’t satisfied with the performance of the team, but were held back from axing the Franco-German tactician due to the $1m compensation in his contract.
Rohr signed for Nigeria back in 2017 and his current deal expires in June 2020, but Rohr insists that the Amaju Pinnick led NFF board has the right 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 former Burkina Faso boss has failed to rule out dumping the Nigerian senior national team, after confirming he has received offers from several African countries.
