Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has mandated its Technical and Development Committee to employ a new coach for the senior women national team, Super Falcons.
The directive was issued to the technical committee by the Executive Committee of the NFF after its meeting held at the Hotel Presidential, Port Harcourt, Rivers State Tuesday.
The NFF says the technical committee should “put all machinery in motion, to, within the next two weeks, facilitate the employment of a new Head Coach for the senior women national team, Super Falcons.
It would be recalled that the NFF relieved erstwhile coach of the team, Edwin Okon of his job after Nigeria performed woefully at the last FIFA Women’s World Cup in Canada, failing to get past the group stage of the tournament.
The body appointed a caretaker coach, Chris Danjuma, who took Nigeria to the football event of the ongoing All Africa Games in Congo Brazzaville.
The NFF Executive Committee at the Port Harcourt meeting also endorsed a proposal by the Referees Committee for the institution of a Referee of The Month award. The
Committee, unanimously, passed a vote of confidence on the leadership of its President, Mr. Amaju Melvin Pinnick.
