Amaju Pinnick, the president of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has berated the action of the Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr to have accused the federation of owing him salary.The German tactician had in a recent interview claimed that the NFF is currently owing him $100,000 in bonuses and allowances, a report that has been debunked by the federation.

Pinnick has cleared the air on the federation bill with Rohr in terms of payment of salaries. According to him,

“We don’t owe you (Rohr), you cannot come out to say that we owe you salary. We pay you, an employee, and you must respect the employer because we pay you salary religiously.”

Pinnick further advised the technical adviser to be mindful of his utterances in the media.

‘’If they pay you, you don’t come out to say they pay you. There are some things you don’t say.”

Rohr’s present contract is set to expire in June 2020.
