The World football governing body FIFA will this week render their verdict on the manner in which erstwhile coach Gernot Rohr was sacked by the Nigeria Football Federation. Rohr was kicked out in December 2021 before the delayed 2021 AFCON in Cameroon the following week. The Franco-German coach maintained his dismissal was unfair as he still had a contract till December 2022 and had fulfilled all the targets set for him by his employers. He was allegedly also owed several months’ salary.
Although the NFF suggested that they came to arrangement with a Rohr before the sack, the terms of his severance package were sketchy. Moreover the German tactician remains disgruntled.
Tragedy swiftly followed the dismissal of Gernot Rohr as Nigeria failed woefully in Afcon and world cup qualification endeavours within weeks.
The fans is sadly still licking their wounds.
