Qualifying matches for the 2022 FIFA World Cup was also suspended and shifted to 2022 instead of 2021 the original date.

Reacting to this development, the German tactician stated that the hectic 2021 schedule may affect the players’ performance at the tournaments.

“The Africa Cup of Nations is postponed. It’s the same for everyone so it’s not a drawback,” Rohr told Girondins4ever.

“We have more time to prepare as well as for other countries. We can continue the play-offs and start the World Cup qualifiers at the same time.

“But it will be a difficult 2022 year because already in 2021, there are a lot of qualifying matches to play for the team.

“I think we will have time to play a few friendlies. In the year 2022, if we have qualified for the World Cup and the Afcon, there will be many, many games to play.
“So it will certainly be a difficult year.”
