– Gernot Rohr feels the apartment rented for him by the NFF is too big

New Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has rejected the apartment provided by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in Abuja.
According to the Daily Post, Rohr feels the apartment is ‘too big’ and would rather want a smaller place than the three bedroom flat rented by the NFF.
The 63-year-old inspected his apartment which was located in Jabi, but insists he wants a smaller apartment.
Rohr is entitled to official accommodation, 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.

Rohr reportedly earns $47,000 a month with his salary bankrolled by Capital Oil and Gas company owned by Ifeanyi Ubah.
The German’s first match in charge of the Super Eagles was a 1 – 0 win over Tanzania in a dead rubber AFCON 2017 qualifier which was settled by youngster Kelechi Iheanacho.
Frenchman Paul Le Guen had earlier rejected the technical adviser job because he could not come to terms with the NFF over his living conditions in the country.
Rohr is working with the likes of Alloy Agu and Salisu Yusuf in the national team set-up.
