How NFF could lose Eredivisie top scorer to Belgium if they fail to give Rohr New Contract

Super Eagles coaching contractual situation could change a lot of things in the Super Eagles ranks as the team could be destroyed from the administrative angle.
The Nigeria Football Federation led by Amaju Melvin Pinnick are yet to reach a conclusion about the contract renewal of Franco-German tactician with the Coronavirus pandemic putting Football on hold for now especially stopping the March international Football fixtures with the Confederation of African Football postponing the scheduled 2021 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers.
With the unfortunate situation, Nigeria still run the risk of losing Cyriel Dessers to country of birth if Gernot Rohr is not retained by the unpredictable Nigeria Footballing body.
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) won the race for the services of Heracles Almelo’s goal poacher, Cyriel Dessers but the current outbreak of Coronavirus won't permit Nigeria to see the Dutch Eredivisie top scorer in green and white on time.
Born in Leuven, Belgium, the striker has a Nigerian mother, making him eligible to represent the three-time African champions.

Dessers had trained with Belgium’s U-21 national team in the past and was a non-playing substitute when they faced Moldova in a European U-21 Championship qualifier five years ago.
Belgium are surely not impressed by Dessers allegiance pledge to Nigeria but they won't relent in their quest to have him as part of the Euro 2020 squad, a tournament which has been postponed till 2021.
The employment of another gaffer could see Cyriel Dessers not to get the competitive nod on time and the Coach may likely play to the script of the Nigeria Football Federation of having more player from the Nigeria Professional Football League in the Nigeria senior national team.

Gernot Rohr current contract with the Nigeria Football Federation will expire in June and the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations bronze medalist could be tempted by another juicy offer elsewhere.
