Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has rejected an official residence presented to him by the Nigerian Sports ministry in Abuja because it was “too big,” reports say. The 63-year-old German coach reportedly told Nigerian authorities that all he wanted was a regular apartment.
Quoting a report by Daily Post,
New Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has reportedly rejected a three-bedroom apartment in Abuja, saying it is “too big”.
The 63-year-old inspected the house which was rented for him by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in Jabi, but insists he wants a smaller apartment.
Rohr is entitled to official accomodation, as part of the terms of the two-year deal he signed with the NFF. He is also expected to be provided with an official car.
The German, who is on a massive $47,000 a month, took charge of his first official game last weekend against Tanzania and is preparing towards a 2018 World Cup qualifier in Zambia next month.
