Former Super Eagles Head Coach Gernot Rohr has dragged the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) to the governing body of World football FIFA over the manner of the termination of his contract with the West African nation.

Rohr was disengaged by the top brass of Nigerian football in the build-up to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon due to a perceived lack of trust in him and a feeling of discontent among the decision-makers.

The Franco-German tactician was relieved of his duties in November 2021 and proceeded to file a case before FIFA shortly afterwards. He wanted a compensation of $1 million, with the full amount to be paid in US Dollars as against the terms of his contract, which stated that he would be paid in Nigerian Naira. He also requested that the full legal cost he incurred be paid by NFF and that NFF be sanctioned for the way he was treated.

On April 21st 2022, FIFA revealed their judgement on the case and all of the requests made by Gernot Rohr were denied. The governing body, however, instructed NFF to compensate the former coach with six months salary amounting to $350,000 for the unjust termination of his contract. According to renowned sports journalist Tobi Adepoju, this sum had been paid prior to Rohr filing the case.

LOL. Well, the rumor is that Gernot Rohr has been paid shortly after he filed the case and before this was released. However, I cannot testify that story's truth.

Never mind I changed my mind about the Gofundme, I just did a family tree check and found out that Rohr is a distant Uncle to me from my father's side (don't ask me how that happened), I know my senior Uncle won't forget me...we must enjoy that dollar together :thumbs:

...it pays to be oyinbo.
Can you imagine a Nigerian coach going to fifa and getting an equitable judgement? nah, never.
You stick your neck where you don't belong you get burnt.
But Nigeria never learn their lesson as they are hiring another oyinbo.
