Coronavirus stalls Appointment of Super Falcons Coach – Pinnick


NFF President Amaju Pinnick says the coronavirus situation has delayed the appointment of a substantive coach for the Super Falcons.

The Falcons are yet to have a new gaffer since the exit Thomas Dennerby last September.


Speaking in an interview with Channels TV on Monday, Pinnick assured that a world-class coach will be appointed for the Falcons in the coming weeks.


The Delta state football administrator also maintained that quite a number of tacticians have shown interest in the Falcons job.


“We ought to have done this by now because like I said, it is out of our hands now.


“We contracted PwC as a consultant to advertise and get us a world-class coach and they were in the process of doing that before the coronavirus started.


“We had given them a deadline. We wanted them to appoint a coach before the end of April, so that the coach could start work immediately.


“The good news is that we have a lot of coaches that have shown interest if I mention their names you will be shocked, but I won’t. We will give Nigerians the best.”
