Nigeria Football Federation has appointed former Trinidad and Tobago coach, Mr Randy Waldrum as the new head coach of Super Falcons.

Waldrum’s appointment was announced in a statement by  Communications Department of NFF on Monday.

His appointment comes a year after former coach, Mr Thomas Dennerby, resigned from the Falcons job.

According to NFF, Phillips Consulting helped in Waldrum’s appointment.

The statement quoted NFF President, Mr Amaju Pinnick, as saying the new coach would take Falcons to the next level.

“The predominance of Super Falcons on African continent has never been in doubt, with nine titles out of 11 editions of the Women AFCON competitions held so far. We envision a new Super Falcons squad competing favourably for laurels at global level, and I believe the new technical crew led by Waldrum can take us to that level,” Pinnick said.

The new coach will work with former Falcons goalkeeper, Ms Ann Chiejine, as first Assistant Coach and Mr Wemimo Olanrewaju as second Assistant Coach, while Mr Auwar Makwalla is the team’s new goalkeepers’ trainer.
