Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, pays Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr the sum of N19, 800, 000 ($55, 000) just to qualify the team for Russia 2018 World Cup and 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, can report.

River State Football Association President, Barr. Chris Green disclosed this in a on line interview on Friday.

The Special Adviser on Real Madrid Academy to Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike wondered how the German could be earning such without any result to show for the value of the money he is being paid.

The Former Chairman of the NFF Technical Committee also expressed worry over the rush by the federation to extend Rohr’s contract with the Eagles at a time he should have been allowed to go when his contract expires next month.

“What is not clear to me is the worry to extend his contract. We are not talking of sack here but extension. If his contract ends he is free to go unless my guys in the NFF are satisfied with his scorecard or result. Are you telling me that Nigerians are satisfied with Rohr for winning nothing with the Super Eagles, (SE) for 4 years and earning a whopping $55, 000.

“As an expatriate I would have expected that he would have performed better than our nationals. If you paid him that amount just to qualify the SE then we can as well pay same to any of our coaches around and get the same result. That one will be more beneficial to a Nigerian coach than for an expatriate to just qualify us to tournaments, failed to get to the second round of the WC and a modest 3rd place in AFCON.

“Why was this clause not in the first two contracts that he signed? Is it not implied that you will reside in the country of your employment. Well if the NFF insists on that, they are absolutely right and would want to get the best out of him as well as develop our domestic players. My problem is not paying him in Nigerian currency but the amount. Whatever you pay him can be changed to dollars. It’s of the same and how has that helped our economy. Honestly as an expatriate he has a right to be paid in the currency of his choice.

“Meanwhile the NFF under Pinnick did a lot to support him. I don’t think this is what the NFF wants. Maigari won almost everything with SE and other Nigerian coaches in the lower Cadre. Pinnick is too passionate that he’s in fire need of a cup in AFCON or at the world level. Let him look for a world class coach to make the present crop of the SE players invincible. He can achieve this, I tell you,” he said.
