Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) President, Amaju Melvin Pinnick has thrown more light on the monthly take-home for Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, saying the Franco-German tactician is now earning $55,000 and not $60,000, as has been reported in the media.
According to Footballlive.ng, Pinnick insists Rohr is earning only $55,000 as his monthly salary, adding that this is so only because the soccer body recently approved a $10,000 increment for the gaffer.
This comes hot on the heels of a survey just before the World Cup, which showed how Rohr has become the world’s 24th highest paid coach from all 32 coaches that handled teams at Russia 2018.
Back then, the report stated that the 64-year-old tactician was earning £436,600 per annum.
In Africa, Rohr was rated third behind Egypt’s Hector Cuper (£1.30m per annum) and Herve Renard of Morocco (£681,000), but ahead of Tunisia chief coach, Nabil Maaloul, who was quoted with £305,500 per annum. Read more
