NFF president Amaju Pinnick has given more details how the new Super Eagles coach, most likely now to be Gernot Rohr, will be paid by the broke football federation.
Rohr is expected to be contracted by the NFF for the duration of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.
And Pinnick has now disclosed in a YouTube interview that the yet-to-be-named oil company has agreed to bankroll the salaries of the new coach and for transparency and accountability, this sponsor will pay to the NFF financial consultants, Financial Derivatives, who will then pay the coach.
He said that after presentation to several companies, the NFF were able to secure a deal to pay a new foreign coach.
“This company will fund it (payments for foreign coach) and to make it very professional, the sponsor will pay our consultants Financial Derivatives, who will then pay the coach,” explained Pinnick.Watch him speak on the Olympic team and the new super eagles coach
