Agumanu ready for Falcons' job



Former Super Falcons' assistant coach, Ann Agumanu-Chiejine has said she is available for the side's top job.

The Falcons' head coach job is at present vacant following the sudden resignation of manager, Kadiri Ikhana after his team's dismal performance at the 8th African Women's Championship in Equatorial Guinea.

Agumanu, who guided the Lagos women's team to a gold medal at the just concluded 18th National Sports Festival in Lagos, said she will not turn her back on serving fatherland.

"If I'm called upon to serve in that capacity, of course, I'll be ready to serve my country.

"I'm a Nigerian, so why won't I handle Super Falcons if called upon to do so.

"Lagos State believed in me and saddled me with the task of handling her women's football team at the festival and I delivered the gold medal to them.

"I'll do same with the Super Falcons once given the approval. I can return the team to her pristine position both in Africa and on the globe," said the Uefa B-licence certificate holder to supersport.com.

The former Nigerian goalkeeper said her experience at the helms of Team Lagos women's side showed that raw talents abound in every cranny waiting for discovery.

"There is hope for Nigeria in women's football because the talents to make her truly great abound everywhere.

"What we need to do is to evolve a long-term programme that will harness the talents and turn them into super stars.

"With dedicated and experienced coaches on board Nigeria won't be too far to self-rediscovery and a quick return to the number spot in Africa," said the former Rivers Angels magnet.

Agumanu-Chiejine's charges won all their matches with wide scorelines up to the final where they grabbed gold at the expense of Team Akwa Ibom.
