Rohr May Dump Super Eagles If…, -Nwosu Warns NFF

Former Nigerian Midfielder, Henry Nwosu has charged the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to offer Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr a new contract.

Rohr on Tuesday noted that he won't beg the football body to extend his contract with just three months left to his current contract.

The NFF engaged the German coach in August 2016 on a two-year contract, which was renewed in January 2018 ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

However, reacting to this development, the 1980 Africa Cup of Nations winner, told the Guardian that the hoarding of Rohr's contract may affect Super Eagles' chances of qualifying for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

“It is dangerous for the NFF to continue dragging the issue of the renewal of Rohr’s contract.

“We don’t know when the Coronavirus scare will end… but if it ends in June and the NFF has still not resolved the Rohr issue, he might dumb the national team and move on. This might affect the Eagles’ build-up for the qualifiers.

“I believe Rohr has done a good job with the Eagles and they should allow him to continue.

”But if the NFF doesn’t want to review his contract, then they should move for another coach while there is still time,” he said.
