NFF blasts Gernot Rohr for Breach of Contract


The Nigerian Football Federation has bounced heavily on Super Eagles Manager, Gernot Rohr for breaching a part of an agreement on the contract signed in 2015.

The Administrative House was critical of Rohr’s decision of divulging some information relating to his contract to the media, which was against the agreement of his employers.

Rohr had earlier this month issued a two-month ultimatum to the NFF over his future with the national team, saying he could be forced to quit his post if things are not regularized, and that didnt go down well with the body, and its Technical Director, Mr. Bitrus Bewarang has hit back with the notion that it violates some of the clauses in his contract.


“In as much as we appreciate the work that Mr. Rohr has been doing with the Super Eagles in the past 40 months, his recent penchant for breaching provisions of the contract he signed with the NFF and the Code of Conduct for coaches is not good for the relationship”, Bewarang was quoted saying as in Abuja on Wednesday.

“The NFF wishes that Mr. Rohr continues in the job because of the team he is building for Nigeria which looks promising and has earned some good results since he took charge, but he cannot continue to nonchalantly cause the NFF as a body, and Nigeria as a nation, reputational damage through his utterances and actions”.
