NFF coy on new Falcons coach



The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is giving little away as regards the appointment of a new coach for the women’s national team, the Super Falcons.

Former coach, Kadiri Ikhana resigned after leading the Falcons to a dismal outing at the 2012 Africa Women’s Championships (AWC) in Equatorial Guinea.

Nigeria finished in 4th place, the worst in their history in the competition, and Ikhana duly fell on his sword.

Speculation and name-dropping have been the order of the day as regards Ikhana’s replacement and the NFF is playing its card close to its chest.

Chairperson of the Nigeria Women’s League and member of the Executive Committee of the NFF, Dilichukwu Onyedinma said the new coach will be appointed soon.

“We are working on it. I know that the executive board and the technical committee will live up to expectations. We will also give our input to make sure that we get the best for our Super Falcons,” Onyednma exclusively told supersport.com.

Onyedinma also took the time to react to speculation linking several ex-internationals to the vacant position.

“All you have been hearing are rumours and rumours are rumours,” she said.

Quizzed on when the federation would appoint a new coach, she said: “I cannot give that information at the moment.”
