Super Falcons and Levante forward has debunked reports claiming the current coach isn’t as tactically astute as other local Nigerian coaches…
Super Falcons midfielder, Ngozi Okobi has denied claims flying around on Randy Waldrum’s capabilities as the coach of the Super Falcons, soccernet.ng reports.
Speculations spread around the nation after Waldrum left the Levante forward out of his provisional world-cup squad, despite Rasheedat Ajibade and Halimatu Ayinde missing Australia’s first two group-stage games.
It was mentioned that Ngozi revealed that there are better coaches than the American tactician, and he is not superior to local Nigerian coaches.
She has, however, gone on record to clarify that she did not make any of those statements and has threatened to take legal action should anyone continue to push a false narrative that she said anything of that nature.
”I have not and will not make any public statements on the Women’s World Cup squad team, until a final decision, which is irreversible, has been taken. In the light of the above, I advise whoever peddling such falsehood to desist or be ready to face legal actions.” she wrote.
I did NOT at anytime or any occasion issue or make such statements. It is simply the works of peddlers of FAKE News and FALSEHOOD, who profit from misinformation to gain attention. pic.twitter.com/TNtdMEIceJ
