Nigerian and Maccabi Kabilio Jaffa midfielder, John Ogu, has suggested to the Nigerian Football Federation to allow Coach Randy Waldrum to work with the Super Eagles team, Soccernet.ng reports.
Nigerians have applauded the sixty-six-year-old coach, for a job well done, as he led the Super Falcons to the round of sixteen, against the odd, as they were in a group labelled to be the group of death, albeit a painful loss to England on penalties on Monday morning.
Coach Waldrum, before the tournament, blasted the NFF for not allowing him enough time to practice with his team so as to pick the best bunch.
He went on air to say one of the main reasons he’s going to the tournament is because of the team, and how they’re a close-knit bunch, and after the loss against England, the coach said he would like to continue to coach the Super Falcons.
However, Ogu has gone on to praise the coach on his social media page, crediting him for a job well done, and urging the NFF to allow the coach to work with the Super Eagles amidst the dilemma José Peseiro’s contract renewal.
