Falcons to get foreign coach very soon-Pinnick

After the exit of Thomas Dennerby, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is almost finalizing another deal to bring in an expatriate to lead the Super Falcons

NFF President, Amaju Melvin Pinnick made the disclosure when appearing on Sports Today at Channels TV Monday morning.

“We contracted a reputable agency to give us a first class coach, the deal is almost finalized if not for COVID-19 the coach would have been on ground by now. Nigerians will be elated by his resume because he’s a first Grade A coach

Pinnick however declined to indicate whether the coach is from Europe or South America.

He however thumbs up  the current crop of Super Eagles players as the most disciplined the nation has produced in recent time.

“This is the most disciplined Super Eagles I have seen for a long time. We are working round the clock to ensure that we secured the AFCON tickets and qualify for the 2022 World Cup finals.

The Delta born administrator however insisted that the post COVID-19 era will herald difficult time for some of the national team as the federation is looking down on scaling /dropping from some competitions.

“Every competition is important but the reality is that there must be scale of preference. We have 11 national teams ,we don’t have the resources to attend all the competitions , it’s a force majeur- we did not for see it coming and there is virtually nothing we can do about it.

Pinnick maintained that the NFF will up its ante in area of administration, appoint  some head of departments especially in the Marketing Department.

“The lockdown has given us opportunity to right some wrongs in the federation and put in place good governance” he said.

Pinnick assured that there is a silver lining at the end of the day for Nigeria football as all indices is pointing skyward contrary to opinion of some disgruntled individuals, he concluded.
