The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF has explained the contractual situations in which Super Eagles head coach, Genort Rohr and former head coach of the Super Falcons, Thomas Dennerby has with the football governing body.
In a series of tweet on Friday, the NFF stated the following:
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 do 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.
It will be recalled that Thomas Dennerby resigned his position as coach of the Falcons with the team failing to progress in the qualifying round of the Tokyo 2020 Olympics while the Super Eagles led by Genort Rohr are preparing for a prestige friendly against Brazil on Sunday.
