While reacting to the claims, the football body said: "The NFF wishes to put records straight with regards to a claim in the social media on Friday, 11th October 2019 that the football house is owing Super Eagles’ technical adviser, Gernot Rohr, three months’ salary.

NFF said: "As for Mr. Thomas Dennerby, we have received his resignation letter and of course, he has his right to resign from a job.

"We want to put it on record that no Head Coach in the history of the Super Falcons has been afforded the level and readiness of support that has been provided Mr. Dennerby by this Board.

"Perhaps, one of the reasons he left was because we did not accede to his request to bring in more expatriate coaches and an indigenous coach who do not have the required license.

"If we had agreed to his request for more expatriate coaches, that would have left our indigenous coaches presently with the team in the lurch."

Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigeria's Super Eagles face off with Brazil in an international friendly game at the Singapore National Stadium on Sunday, October 13.

Though, nothing is at stake in the match, it will however help coach Gernot Rohr test the quality of the team he has been building against a tough opposition.

Selecao earlier in the week played a 1-1 draw against the best team in Africa, Senegal at the same venue, but will hope to up their game against the three time African champions.
