NFF Hides Identity of Super Falcons’ Foreign Coach

The coaching job for the female national team-Super Falcons’- has now been seeded to a foreign coach, this, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF)’s President, Amaju Pinnick has revealed.
The foreign coach whose identity has not been revealed would be in Nigeria to sign a job contract by the first week of December.
Since Florence Omagbemi’s contract was terminated as the Super Falcons’ Coach, the senior female national team side has been without a coach.
Pinnick who spoke recently in Lagos explained that the federation has gone all the way to get the foreign coach hopefully to give the Super Falcons all the best in order to succeed just like the Super Eagles.
He said, “Today we are happy to achieve new development. Within the next 10 days, a contract will be signed for a foreign coach who is coming to Nigeria by next week for the Super Falcons job.
But who is the new coach? All hands are crossed as the glasshouse appeared not to let the cat out of the bag yet.
Meanwhile, Pinnick has dismissed reports that the NFF have long abandoned the Super Falcons, stating they are very much as important as the Super Eagles.
“At a point the Super Eagles were our focus, it doesn’t mean we neglected the Super Falcons. The same thing we have done for the Super Eagles is the same thing we will do for the Super Falcons.
“We are tired of making our presence only at the World Cup, we want to win the women’s World Cup. Other African countries are catching up with us. Ghana, South Africa, Equatorial Guinea. We need to tell them we are still the giants of Africa in women’s football.”
“I remember Shehu Dikko came to me and said we must make sure we look for money. We must make sure we interface with the government in making sure we don’t owe the players anything, forget that the players earn huge salaries, they have responsibilities in Nigeria.
“They see what is going on and they don’t want to be part of failures after their playing days we must encourage them. And of course we interfaced with the government and thankfully they responded from A to Z,” the federation’s president said.
He added: “Please the Super Falcons should know that we have not neglected them. At that point, we needed to focus on what to bring joy to Nigerians and that’s what we did.
So they should forgive us, they are our children, they are our wards, we are happy we have a beautiful relation with them  but stay tuned for the Super Falcons.”
