By Niyi Busari
The President of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Amaju Pinnick has said that the names of Technical Director as well as the Coaches of national teams will be announced as soon as Phillip Consulting is done with recruitment exercise, BSNSports.com.ng can report.
Since the exit of former Super Falcons coach, Thomas Dennerby, in October 2019, the African champions have not had another substantive coach. Also, coaches of the Nigeria U23 Eagles, Flying Eagles, Golden Eaglets have not been named.
Few weeks ago, the federation declared vacant the position of the Technical Director while the Falconets and Flamingos have stand-in coaches.
Pinnick assured Nigerians that all these vacant positions will be filled and those that will occupy the positions will be made known to Nigeria when Phillip Consulting completes the recruitment exercise.
He wrote on his verified twitter: “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.
“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. 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.” He concluded.
