Gernot Rohr, a former head coach of Nigeria, has dragged the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, before FIFA and is awaiting a ruling on a $1 million compensation claim for unfair dismissal, BBC Africa reports.

Rohr was fired in December, weeks for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The German is the longest-serving Super Eagles coach as he was appointed in August 2016.

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

That claim was contested by the NFF, and a FIFA tribunal looking into Rohr’s claim for damages concluded last week.

However, a verdict is yet to be communicated to either party.
