Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr rejects official residence because it's too spacious

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.
