Amaju Pinnick, the President at the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has revealed 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.
Rohr was also at that point ahead of Aliou Cisse of Senegal, who was the lowest-paid of all 32 coaches to Russia 2018, with a £174,500 yearly pay.
“We’re not owing Rohr or any of the national team coaches. We recently renewed the contract of Rohr.
“In the new contract is an addition of $10,000 to his monthly salary. His new salary is $55,000,” Pinnick concluded.
