As reported by International Journalist @oluwashina, Super Eagles Head coach Gernot Rohr has not been paid eight months salary.

The German trainer who has been in charge of the Super Eagles for a while now is reportedly on a monthly salary of $45,000 and directly pays the team's video analyst, Chief scout, as well as fitness coach and goalkeeper trainer from his salary. The fact that Rohr can do all these for the Eagles shows how much he is committed he is to the cause of the Super Eagles and as such, he should be paid as soon as possible.
