Former Super Falcons coach, Kadiri Ikhana has urged the Nigeria Football Federation not to delay in getting a new coach for the national women’s team.
Ikhana led the Falcons to a fruitless African Women’s Championships last year in Equatorial Guinea but he promptly threw in the towel after accepting responsibility for the team’s failure, the first of its kind in the Falcons long reign as African champions.
“I know that the NFF is busy at the moment trying to get Nigeria pick a World Cup ticket. But they should not prolong the appointment of a new coach for the Falcons. This is because there is a need to have a head coach who will kick start the team’s preparations for the tournaments ahead,” said the veteran coach. The 2014 AWC is billed for Namibia and as always, it will serve as the women’s World Cup qualifiers. The 2015 edition will be hosted by Canada.
