Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has been ordered to pay former coach, Gernot Rohr, just under 380,000 dollars in compensation after ending his contract early.
Rohr lost his job as Super Eagles coach in December just four weeks before the 2021 African cup of nations kicked off in Cameroon.

The NFF had agreed to pay Rohr’s salary until the end of his contract, which expires in December 2022, but he went to football’s world governing body, FIFA, to demand an additional sum for breach of contract without just cause.
Gernot Rohr, 68 years old, had sought a total of 1 million pounds, but has been granted 377,879 dollars after a FIFA tribunal decided his claim was partially accepted as it was admissible.
FIFA has warned that NFF will be sanctioned if Rohr is not paid in full within 45 days.
