After weeks of intrigues, the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF has finally confirmed the sacking of its Super Falcons Coach, Mr Randy Waldrum.

The American, who left the team in Australia after guiding them to Round of 16, where they were beaten by finalists England, did not see his contract with the federation renewed.

In a press statement on Monday, the Federation announced that it would reconstitute new technical crews for all its women’s teams based on “meritocracy”

“The Board resolved to be thorough and ensure meritocracy in the composition of new coaching crews for the various Women National Teams (Super Falcons, Falconets and Flamingos) within the shortest possible time, as the Super Falcons and Falconets have crucial qualifying fixtures for major championships in a matter of weeks,” the statement said.

Despite leading the team to its third knockout stage finish in the tournament without losing a match in regulation time, the NFF failed to appreciate Mr Waldrum for his services.

“While commending the Super Falcons for an impressive outing at the FIFA Women’s World Cup Australia and New Zealand 2023, in which the team reached the quarter-finals and exited the tournament without losing a match in regulation period, the Board reiterated that all hands must be on deck to ensure that the momentum is maintained and even improved with adequate support and encouragement of women’s football in all ramifications.”

Randy Waldrum and his employers fail out in the build up to the World Cup after he questioned the federation’s pre-tournament plans and mismanagement of FIFA’s grant.
