Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr Rejects House In Abuja
Super Eagles new Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has reportedly rejected a three-bedroom luxury apartment provided for him by the NFF in Abuja.
63-year-old Super Eagles new coach, Gernot Rohr has reportedly rejected a 3-bedroom luxury apartment provided for him in the federal capital, Abuja by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), saying it is “too big”.
It was learnt that an official accommodation is part of the benefits captured in the two-year contract the Franco-German has signed to qualify Nigeria to the 2018 World Cup, but Rohr, who is married to an African, inspected the 3-bedroom property in Jabi, and told officials he could do with a much smaller apartment.
Reports also revealed that the NFF have moved fast to also provide an official car for the former Gabon and Burkina Faso coach.
The official car first purchased to be used by Sunday Oliseh, is now being fixed after it was used by Olympic team handler Samson Siasia beyond his time in temporary charge of the Eagles for the AFCON 2017 qualifiers against Egypt in March.
The new manager took charge of his first official game last weekend against Tanzania and is preparing towards a 2018 World Cup qualifier in Zambia next month.
Rohr is on a staggering $47,000 a month and this salary is being bankrolled by a mystery sponsor.
