NFF Throws Super Falcons’ Job Open to Foreign, Local Coaches
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has announced that the new coach for the Super Falcons could be a Nigerian or a foreigner.
NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, who disclosed this at the weekend said the most important is to ensure the Super Falcons get a manager that can keep them on top of African football.
He stated that anyone interested in coaching the falcons should apply to Pricewaterhouse (PWC) – a company that has been given the contract to recruit coaches for the national male and women teams.
Pinnick noted that PWC has drawn out well-structured criteria the coaches must meet to manage any of the teams.
“The Super Falcons’ coaching job is open to Nigerian and expatriate coaches, who must meet the standard set by PWC,” Pinnick said, adding, “the company has what it takes to pick the best among the list of applicants.
“Some Nigerian coaches based abroad that I have not met have called to inform me that they are interested in the Super Falcons job and I tell them that the federation is not involved in coaches recruitment.
“Any interested person should apply to PWC with their credentials. If former Super Falcons’ stars like Mercy Akide, Florence Omagbemi and others are interested in coaching the Falcons, they should apply through PWC.
“The company has guidelines a coach must attain to get the job. Any coach PWC picks to handle the Falcons at the end of the day will be accepted by the NFF,” he said.
