“We want to put it on record that no Head Coach in the history of the Super Falcons has been afforded the level and readiness of support that has been provided Mr. Dennerby by this Board.
“Perhaps, one of the reasons he left was because we did not accede to his request to bring in more expatriate coaches and an indigenous coach who do not have the required license.
“If we had agreed to his request for more expatriate coaches, that would have left our indigenous coaches presently with the team in the lurch.”
