Super Falcons job still vacant



The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Technical Committee chairman, Chris Green has said the football body is not in a hurry to appoint head coach for the Super Falcons.

The Falcons have been without a substantive coach after manager, Kadiri Ikhana quit his job following the side's poor performance at the Africa Women's Championship in Equatorial Guinea last year.

Green said the football house is working out an expansive programme that will throw up players who will fit into the various cadre of the women teams.

"The technical committee will meet and take decision on the Falcons' head coach but no date for the meeting yet. I think it will be soon, as we have time to think and come out with the best for the team. We won't want to rush such important issue and get our fingers burnt thereafter.

"We're trying to put something in place, a talent hunt programme for the women. We want to start preparation in earnest not for competition per se but to discover talents that will fit into the Under-17, Under-20 and the Super Falcons. We want to cash in on the one-year recess to get these programmes done," he said to supersport.com.

Green said the committee will go for the best hand for the position irrespective of colour or gender.

"We'll recommend the coach with the requisite knowledge not gender, sex or colour. Only the best will get the job," he said.
