Rohr was said to have reported to the NFF to FIFA that they have not been paying him which the football body then ruled that he must be paid.

Speaking with PUNCH Sports Extra:

“Since the FIFA judgment, they (NFF) didn’t pay anything. FIFA paid me a part of the sum they owe me and that is normally (from) a part of the development budget they pay to African federations.
“My lawyer reminded them, FIFA and NFF that interests have to be paid. The dollar amount will grow with time and this is the law.”

Asked whether he would be taking the NFF to the Court of Arbitration for Sports, the gaffer added;

“No, because normally FIFA gives a guarantee for payment."
