The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has reportedly paid the salaries of Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, upfront till December.
It was scooped that the Amaju Pinnick NFF-led group is determined to avoid mistakes of years past, ensuring that the gaffer will not be distracted on his job.
“I can tell you with boldness that Gernot Rohr has no reason not to do well with the task assigned to him in the Super Eagles. NFF has paid him upfront salaries before the world cup in Russia til December,” FootballGhana quoted a source.
“NFF has done well by taking good care of the financial entitlements of Rohr and I don’t think the federation should be criticised in that aspect,” he added.
Despite the painful elimination of the Super Eagles at the group stage of the Russia 2018 World Cup, NFF extended the contract of Rohr for another two years in order for him to be focused on the task of qualifying the team for Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament to be hosted by Cameroon in 2019.
Nigeria is threading on a dangerous path in the qualifying campaign trailing behind South Africa and Libya in a group that only two teams will qualify for the African football fiesta.
Super Eagles will file out against Libya this Saturday at the Ibom International stadium, Uyo with the reverse fixture coming up four days later in Sfax, Tunisia.
