Nigeria’s Super Falcons will get a new manager soon, the president of Nigeria’s Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick has announced.
Pinnick expressed concern over the performance of the Super Falcons this year but insists the federation plans to ensure performances improve again by employing a new manager.
He stated this at the finals of the Oshoala Football Championship For Girls, which ended at the Campos Mini Stadium, Lagos yesterday,
The Falcons have been without a coach since the departure of Thomas Dennerby who left for India in October citing several breaches of his contract, including, unpaid wages and a lack of co-operation from the federation.
“The NFF has been having a series of meetings to discuss the way forward for our national teams,” he said.
“Top on the agenda is getting a new coach for the Super Falcons. With this on the pipeline, I can assure you that a credible coach will be appointed to the Super Falcons soon. The NFF is planning big for the female national team.”
Dennerby took up the job of Super Falcons coach in January 2018 and led Nigeria’s Senior Women’s National team to the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) title in December 2018.
