NFF Shortlists Nine Local Coaches For Falcons Job
Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Federation, Bitrus Bewarang, says nine local coaches have been shortlisted for the vacant Super Falcons coaching job.
Bewarang also revealed that the nine coaches are listed for the roles of head coach, goalkeeper trainer and assistant coach.
He added that their choices were based on the applications they received for the vacant positions.
Bewarang also said that the Technical Department of the NFF looked at certain requirements before arriving at their decision.
“We look at coaches that have been churning out results with their clubs and also the kind of discipline the coaches have, because with women, we have to be very careful. We have to look for coaches that are mature and have been working with women teams for quite a long time,” Bewarang told The PUNCH.
“We shortlisted nine coaches, two head coaches, three goalkeeper trainers and four assistant coaches and they are all local. We shortlisted what we saw in the applications we received.
“Other teams’ appointment will be announced soon. The NFF has commissioned a company to do some of the work, we are just trying to step in because some of the teams have competitions that are very close; that is why we are doing what we are doing.
“We made recommendations and until I have approval before I can present to the public,” he added.
