The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has gently announced Randy Waldrum’s resignation as manager of the senior women’s national team after leading the Super Falcons to victory in the just finished Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.
The NFF charged its technical committee with finding new managers for the team in advance of the qualifiers for the Paris 2024 Olympics yesterday. On the eve of the World Cup, Waldrum and the federation had a tense relationship, but the country’s subsequent strong showing at the competition covered up the tension. After the championship, there were rumors that the NFF would not extend the American’s contract, which had come to an end with the event.
Ibrahim Musa Gusau, president of the federation, gave the newly established NFF Technical Committee instructions during their inauguration in Abuja. He ordered them to form new technical crews for the majority of the national teams.
The Super Falcons returned from the FIFA World Cup with style, but we must keep it in mind, he remarked.
Gusau emphasized that sessions could be held in person or by video conference and that the NFF would support the committee in getting its work done.
In response, the committee’s chairman, Sharif Rabiu Inuwa, said that the group would carry out its responsibilities with the utmost care and would be motivated by the Gusau administration’s vision to work pro-actively and vigorously to ensure the true development of the game of football in Nigeria in all of its facets and ramifications.
