The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF has announced on Thursday that a new coach will be appointed for the Super Falcons next month.
The former coach of the team, Thomas Dennerby left the team unceremoniously in August 2019.
President of the NFF, Amaju Pinnick make the confirmation in a chat on Instagram live, that a world-class coach will be appointed in the next two to three weeks for the senior women’s national team.
He explained that the federation was on the verge of signing a final contract with a top-notched company (Philips Consulting) in terms of human resource management and recruitment.
“Very soon, we will sign a contract with them this week. Once that is done, from Monday, they will now reach out via Zoom to conduct an interview.
“Within the next two to three weeks, I am 100% sure that we are going to have these coaches.
The NFF executive committee doesn’t want a situation where they will just appoint a coach for the Super Falcons, Pinnick said.
He said that NFF was already in touch with some of the world-class coaches interested in the Super Falcons job.
According to Amaju Pinnick, the money was there already, so NFF is going to fund the payment of the coach for the next two to three years.
“The good thing about the Falcons is that the money to pay the coach is there already when we received their prize money from the last World Cup, which totalled about 762,000 Dollars, 30% was given to the players, the balance will be kept in a separate account, from there, we are going to fund the payment of the coach for the next two to three years,” he said.
The NFF also promised that the FIFA windows will be used to organised international friendlies for the team particularly this period that the African women’s cup of nations has been cancelled with CAF proposing the tournament will be held before the women’s world cup.
The 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup will be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
