The Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Bitrus Bewarang says the coronavirus pandemic has halted their plans to renew the contract of Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr.
Rohr, whose current contract will expire this summer (July), has been on loggerheads with the football body over a new contract.
Reacting to this development, Bewarang told Punch online that the NFF is willing to maintain a perfect relationship with the German tactician by extending his contract once the pandemic is declared over.
“It is unfortunate that we can’t do anything about the disaster. It is really unfortunate, but the truth of the matter is we cannot say anything about it (Rohr’s contract),” Bewarang told The Punch.
“From the NFF, what I can say is that we were ready to renew his contract, but now that France is one of the countries that have been shut down due to the coronavirus and we might not be seeing him (Rohr) for a while.
“So, we have to exercise patience with some of these things.”
