Waldrum Owes Nigerians An Apology – NFF


NFF technical director, Austin Eguavoen has moved to clear the air about the news making rounds that Super Falcons head coach, Randy Waldrum has apologized for the furore caused by his interviews, where he called out the Football Federation.

Waldrum dropped two bombshell interviews which rocked the Nigerian media space ahead of the team’s preparation for the FIFA Women’s World Cup.


The American gaffer called out the Federation for several alleged wrongdoings including mismanagement of funds.

Sequel to that, however, it was reported that Eguavoen had revealed that the Coach apologized for all that transpired, at a time when the team was preparing for its World Cup camp.

Reacting to the reports, Eguavoen told Brila FM that there was never an official apology from the American, albeit there was a conversation with the Coach.

“Waldrum is a professional like myself, and we talk even when it has nothing to do with the national team assignment,” the NFF director said.

” We talk and in the course of discussing, I said to him ‘listen, abcd’ and so on and so forth, and he said to me ‘okay Austin I can understand, I’m sorry for those actions but you people should try and see what you can do about this and that.

“I said ‘Yes we will do our best, don’t worry it might not come quickly, but it will definitely come, just be patient,’ and he said ‘Okay I’m sorry’.

“That was what I told the guy, it was not that he apologized publicly to the Nigerian people, we were talking one on one.”
