NFF Denies Owning Rohr, Clarifies Dennerby’s Situation

The Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, says it is not owing any of the Coaches in its employ any salary.

This is contained in a statement it issued on Twitter via has its handle @thenff.

The Football body also cleared the air concerning Super Falcons coach, Thomas Dennerby.

Full Statement

“The NFF wishes to put records straight with regards to a claim in the social media on Friday, 11th October 2019 that the football house is owing Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, three months’ salary.

As we speak, Mr. Rohr is only being owed salary for the month of September 2019, which is being processed.

As for Mr. Thomas Dennerby, we have received his resignation letter and of course, he has his right to resign from a job.

We want to put it on record that no Head Coach in the history of the Super Falcons has been afforded the level and readiness of support that has been provided Mr. Dennerby by this Board.

Perhaps, one of the reasons he left was because we did not accede to his request to bring in more expatriate coaches and an indigenous coach who does not have the required license.

If we had agreed to his request for more expatriate coaches, that would have left our indigenous coaches presently with the team in the lurch.”
