Super Falcons set to get a new coach
Super Falcons new coach: A new coach will be announced for the Super Falcons soon, says the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
Since erstwhile manager Thomas Dennerby resigned last October, the Super Falcons have been without a coach.
With Dennerby’s resignation, Christopher Danjuma led the team for the Olympic qualification game against Ivory Coast – a game the side lost out on aggregate to the Les Elephants by 1-0

Almost a year without a coach for the most successful football team on the continent of Africa, Nigeria’s football governing body revealed that the announcement of a gaffer for the team was imminent.
“With regards to a Coach for the Super Falcons, Africa’s biggest female football team, Phillips Consulting, in charge of the recruitment process, are putting finishing touches to it and a Coach will be announced soon,” Amaju Pinnick, NFF President said.
He continued, “This also applies to Coaches for the different cadres of our National Teams. I’d like to ask that you tarry with us a while.
“On the vacant positions in Nigerian football, I’m hopeful that a Technical Director will be announced soon, as we are still having extensive consultations.”
While, they’ve been numerous reports on who’s going to replace Bitrus Bewerang as the Technical Director of Nigerian football, all indications are pointing to the direction that an ex-international will fill the void.
Emmanuel Amuneke and Sunday Oliseh are believed to be the leading names for the position
It was learnt that the NFF have made an offer of N3m to Amuneke to leave his current position with Misr Lel Makassar in Egypt, but the 1994 African Footballer of the Year reportedly considered the offer too small compared to what he earned in his current job.
