Report reaching Blueprint early Monday morning has it that Super falcons coach, Thomas Dennerby has been forced out of his job.
The decision of the coach to resign was due to alleged backlog of salary arrears amidst countless frustrating tendencies by his employer – Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
Feelers within glasshouse, headquarters of NFF revealed that Dennerby has already handed over his resignation letter to the federation, some days ago.
A senior official of NFF who don’t want her name mentioned said he was not aware of Dennerby’s resignation when Blueprint put a call across to him Monday morning.
She said, “I’m not aware that he has handed overa resignation letter. The secretariat should feed the public about th a information. I only heard he doesn’t want to work again with Super Falcons, just like any other person heard.”
To further authenticate the rumour of coach Dennerby’s decision to quit, Blueprint put a call across to NFF General Secretary Dr Sanusi Mohammed, but he didn’t respond.
Also, he was yet to reply to a message sent to him as at the time of filling this report
Although, there is no official confirmation yet, Thomas was said to have refused to come back to Nigeria and will not lead the team against the Elephants of Ivory Coast with two weeks to go to the first leg tie in Abidjan.
The Swede left the country after leading the Super Falcons to the third round of the African Women’s Olympic qualifiers.
This was after a 3-0 aggregate win over Algeria but has now left his post.
Blueprint reports that part of the frustration that the foreign coach couldn’t bear was repeated refusal of NFF officials to allow him work with his preferred competent assistants.
Rather, the country’s football officials forced ‘rooky couches’ on him.
Only few weeks ago, the NFF refused to renew the contract of one of his reliable assistants Maureen Madu, despite her rich international coaching qualifications and experience.
So far, Blueprint is still waiting for official confirmation to Dennerby’s resignation.
