“I will not ask the NFF what is going on with my contract renewal (with just over three months left on his present deal). It’s for the NFF to approach me. I am still waiting,” BBC’s Osas Obayiuwana quoted Rohr on Twitter.
“My job is to focus on the SuperEagles, as long as I am the coach of this team. And I am going to do just that.”
“Right now, my concern is that our players in Europe stay physically fit, even when they are not playing, because of the coronavirus situation.”
Rohr signed with the Nigeria Football Federation back in 2016 and has to the Super to two major tournaments.
He led the team to the 2018 world cup, where they failed to make it out of the group staga and also third-place finish at the 2019 Afcon tournament in Egypt.
