Gernot Rohr and the Nigeria Football Federation have failed to reach a common ground over his compensation fee.
Rohr has been told verbally by the NFF that he is no longer in charge of the Super Eagles and the German lawyers are currently negotiating with the soccer house on his payoff.
The amount of the severance payoff is the stumbling block to an announcement by the NFF.
The Amaju Pinnick led board have proposed to pay the former Burkina Faso and Gabon gaffer a year’s salary, which comes to about $600,000, for him to quit his post as Super Eagles head coach.

However, it appears Rohr’s lawyers want a lot more.
The lawyers want penalty payments to be included in the payoff.
They will meet the NFF next week Tuesday to resolve the issue.
Rohr’s contract runs until December 2022.
