The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is awaiting a ruling from FIFA on a $1m compensation claim by former coach Gernot Rohr for unfair dismissal.


Rohr, Nigeria’s longest-serving manager after taking charge in August 2016, was sacked in December just four weeks before the delayed 2021 Nations Cup kicked off in Cameroon.


The NFF had agreed to pay Rohr’s salary until the end of his contract, which expires in December 2022, but he went to football’s world governing body to demand an additional sum for damages.


That claim was contested by the NFF, and a Fifa tribunal examining ROHR’S claim for damages concluded last week, but a verdict is yet to be communicated to either party.
