American Waldrum appointed new Super Falcons coach

AMERICAN coach Randy Waldrum has been named as the new head coach of Nigeria’s senior women’s national team, the Super Falcons.

Waldrum, 64, replaces Swede Thomas Dennerby who left the post after the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The new appointment was announced by the Nigeria Football Federation on Monday.

“The Nigeria Football Federation has announced the appointment of Mr. Randy Waldrum as the new Head Coach of the Senior Women National Team, Super Falcons,” the NFF stated in a press release made available to Naija Times.

Former midfielder Waldrum is in his third year as head women’s soccer coach at University of Pittsburgh in the United States and was head coach of the Trinidad and Tobago national team between 2014 and 2016.

He will be assisted in Nigeria by former Super Falcons goalkeeper and captain Ann Chiejine, Wemimo Mathew Olanrewaju and Auwar Bashir Makwalla, who will be goalkeepers’ trainer. 

NFF President Amaju Pinnick thanked Philips Consulting, who oversaw the recruitment processs. He said he has confidence that the new technical crew will elevate the Super Falcons.

“The predominance of the Super Falcons on the African continent has never been in doubt, with nine titles out of 11 editions of the Women’s AFCON competitions held so far,” Pinnick said.

“We envision a new Super Falcons squad competing favourably for laurels at the global level, and I believe the new technical crew led by Mr. Waldrum can take us to that level.”
