The Super Falcons of Nigeria are set to take the path of their male counterparts, the Super Eagles, by having a foreign coach as the team’s technical adviser.
Franco-German coach Gernot Rohr had earlier been appointed as the Super Eagles’ technical adviser just before the start of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification series last year and it seems the female national team (senior) will be moving in that direction after the NFF executive committee approved the appointment of a foreign coach.
At its meeting on Wednesday, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) executive committee approved the appointment of Randy Waldrum as the technical adviser of the Super Falcons as recommended by the federations technical committee for the appointment of Randy Waldrum as Falcons’ technical adviser.
The board also called on the secretariat to finalise negotiations with Waldrum, 61, a former Trinidad and Tobago women national team coach.
The new development was confirmed by a statement from the NFF which said:
“The Board approved the recommendation of the Technical and Development Committee for the appointment of Mr. Randy Waldrum as Technical Adviser of the Super Falcons, and directed the Secretariat to immediately conclude negotiations with Mr. Waldrum.”
