The soon-to-be announced Super Falcons’ Technical Adviser ranks among the best women’s coaches of the world, AOIFootball.com has gathered.
The eight-time African champions have been without a coach since they claimed the trophy in an unprecedented fashion in Cameroon in 2016.
With no real activity in 2017, the NFF did not engage the team in any international friendly or competition, with total attention focused on the Super Eagles’ qualification for the World Cup.
Towards the end of the year however, and after negotiations with American coach, Randy Waldrum, the federation was ready to announce his appointment and reel out the programme of the team, only for Waldrum to opt out to stay in the United States instead, signing up for University of Pittsburgh women’s soccer team in December.
All that will definitely change as findings indicate the NFF will sign up a ‘world class’ coach for the team in a bid to change the fortunes of the team, with the aim to have the Falcons surpass the quarterfinals stage they reached at the 1999 edition of the World Cup, the highest they have attained since participation.
NFF President Amaju Melvin Pinnick, in a recent interview with Channels TV which was monitored by AOIFootball.com, confirmed the Falcons will have a coach before the end of January and that it will be worth the wait.
The documentations and negotiations with the soon to be known coach have almost been completed and in a short time the personality of the coach will be revealed, according to Pinnick.
