A communique made public by the executives of the Nigeria Football Federation NFF, after its Annual General Meeting(AGM) revealed Randy Waldrum has been axed from his position as Super Falcons coach.

Randy Waldrum just ahead of the 2023 FIFA women’s World, had a very awful PR with the NFF. The American has accused the NFF of blackmail, misappropriation of funds, lack of support and breach of contract.

However, the NFF in what seemed like a response through its Director of Communications Ademola Olajire, described Waldrum as a ‘blabbermouth”. Also the Federation described the tactician as a the worst coach ever to manage the Super Falcons.
