Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has denied rejecting the accommodation given to him by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in Abuja.
Rohr slammed the reports as distracting and said his words were taken out of context.
“I never rejected any apartment,” he said.
“I might have spoken to a few people who I believed to be genuinely interested in me, saying that the apartment was very big and I joked that I might get lost inside it when I start to live there, but I never rejected it.
“When the Federation engaged me, and told me I had to live in Nigeria, I agreed to it because I believed that my base has to be in the country where I work. I did the same in Niger, Burkina Faso and Gabon, and I do not see it any differently in Nigeria,” Rohr added in a statement.
The Franco-German added: “The Federation moved to rent an apartment for me, and this is a good gesture that shows their commitment.
“If I have issues with it, it should be done directly through the Federation and not on the pages of the media.”
