No gender talk for Falcons’ job

| March 3, 2013 | 0 Comments

The chairperson of the Nigeria Women’s Football League, Dilichukwu Onyedinma has said there is no cause for alarm over the delay in filling the vacant Super Falcons’ head coach job.

The Falcons have been without a substantive coach after Kadiri Ikhana quit the position following the former African queens’ poor outing at the Africa Women’s Championship (AWC) in Equatorial Guinea last year.

Onyedinma said the delay to fill the vacant position is in the overall interest of the team as the football house is determined to carefully pick the best person for the job.

“I would have been worried if I’m not an insider, I know we’re doing something positive about the Super Falcons’ vacant job. I’m a board member of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), the board is on top of the situation.

“We’re still searching for the suitable person for the job. We have time on our hands, and we want to use it to the fullest to get the best person who will take the side back to the pinnacle where they rightly belong.

“We won’t consider gender or colour in deciding who gets the job rather the person who will deliver.

“But on a personal view, I think we’ve experienced positive results in the hands of indigenous coaches so I strongly believe we could get a good one within the land,” she said to

Onyedinma said the Falcons remain the strongest side in Africa notwithstanding their poor showing at the last Africa Women’s Championship.

“The Falcons maybe down at the moment but not out. They are a side to be reckoned with in the globe. That’s why we want to get it right this time to make them number one again with the right coach in charge,” she said.
