Former Super Falcons Coach, Godwin Izilien, has urged the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to halt search for a foreign coach for the senior women national team.
He believes that hiring an indigenous coach for the Falcons would reduce the financial burden on the federation, especially now that COVID-19 has affected the economy negatively.
Izilien wondered why the NFF would be going for a foreign coach when Nigerian coaches had been successful with the team in different competitions over the years.
He also tasked the NFF to get a local coach for the women’s team as soon as possible, stressing that the delay in appointing a manager for the Super Falcons would affect the progress and building process of the team. (Guardian)
