The Nigeria Football Federation has appointed former Trinidad and Tobago coach Randy Waldrum as the new head coach of the Super Falcons.
Waldrum’s appointment was announced in a statement by the Communications Department of the NFF, which was made available to our correspondent on Monday.
His appointment comes a year after former coach, Thomas Dennerby, resigned from the Falcons job.
According to the NFF, consulting firm, Phillips Consulting, helped in Waldrum’s appointment.
The statement quoted NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, as saying the new coach would take Falcons to the next level.
“The predominance of the Super Falcons on the African continent has never been in doubt, with nine titles out of 11 editions of the Women AFCON competitions held so far. We envision a new Super Falcons squad competing favourably for laurels at the global level, and I believe the new technical crew led by Mr. Waldrum can take us to that level,” Pinnick said
The new coach will work with former Falcons goalkeeper, Ann Chiejine, as first Assistant Coach and Wemimo Olanrewaju as second Assistant Coach, while Auwar Makwalla is the team’s new goalkeepers’ trainer.
