Nigeria's Coach, Rohr Pockets N18million A Month
It can be specially reported that new Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr will earn $47,000 a month.
This sum converted to local currency at the current exchange rate comes down to over 18 million Naira and it is a geometrical jump from the five million Naira Sunday Oliseh pocketed before he quit his post in February.
The Franco-German has signed a two-year contract, which is now believed will be bankrolled by an oil company owned by Ifeanyi Ubah.
Officials have already argued that Rohr will be assisted by three others he has handpicked – an adviser, a fitness trainer and a video specialist.
The former Burkina Faso and Niger coach will be the one responsible for these assistants.
Rohr will be in charge of next month’s AFCON 2017 qualifier in Uyo against Tanzania, which will mainly serve as warm-up to Nigeria’s opening 2018 World Cup qualifier in Zambia on October 3.
