The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has not paid Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr for three months, The Nation reports.

A source in the glasshouse said Rohr who earns $45,000 monthly has not been paid for the month of January, February and March this year.

He said other national team coaches under the employ of NFF are equally not being paid.

“Rohr has not been paid for three months now. And there are outstandings due to other national team coaches,” the source said.

NFF President, Amaju Pinnick confirmed that the federation is broke. “The NFF is broke. But there are modalities on ground to offset the coaches and outstanding incurred by the federation.”

He said the NFF would meet with Sport Minister, Solomon Dalung over the matter next week.

Pinnick had denied receiving any money from Africa governing football body, CAF, last week.

He however said the 500,000 dollars received by FIFA was spent on the friendly matches arranged for the Super eagles in London.
