NFF Offers Waldrum A New Deal As Super Falcons Coach


The Nigeria Football Federation under Ibrahim Gusau has offered Super Falcons coach Randy Waldrum a new deal.

The contract of the American gaffer expired at the end of the last FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

Since then both parties have been unable to agree to a new contract but now the deal has been agreed upon and will be signed soon.

” We had a lot of discussions with Waldrum and I think he’s agreed (to a contract). We had issues before the World Cup, about who he wanted in the team, but in the contract of NFF and Waldrum, there’s nowhere it is stated that Waldrum has the right to come with any assistant,” Gusau stated.

During talks for a new contract, he brought up the woman’s issue, saying he wanted her in the team but I told him we didn’t want her because I knew her condition.

“He talked about an increment of his allowances and we said no. As far as I’m concerned, the Falcons didn’t surpass their highest level of performance at the World Cup, a quarter-final outing. So, he didn’t meet the parameters for us to negotiate a new allowance.

“That’s what took place before he finally agreed to go with us. By the grace of God, before we will leave for AFCON, the deal will be concluded.”
