Waldrum was the coach of the Super Falcons at the recently concluded FIFA women’s world cup tournament in Australia and New Zealand. And that’s the American’s first world cup outing with any national team.

Shortly after the world cup, it was speculated in the media that waldrum has been relieved of his duties as coach of the national team. And this cannot be far from the awful PR that ensued between federation and the American before the world cup.

Waldrum in an interview accused the NFF for lack of support to his team. Also, he alleged that the officials of the federation are trying to blackmail him. And even wanted to force a player he has never seen on him.

In what seemed like a retaliation, the Nigeria Football Federation NFF, forbade Waldrum from going to the world cup with his assistant Lauren Gregg.

Sadly also, the federation through its Director of Communications Ademola Olajire, described Waldrum as a ‘blabbermouth’. And accused the American of being selfish and greedy, who’s only ambition is to go to the world cup.

It’s not also not good to remember that the NFF also explained Waldrum as the ‘worst coach’ to ever manage Super Falcons.

After the exploits of Super Falcons at the 2023 world cup, Nigerians have clamoured for his contract extension.

And the NFF President has revealed, talks are ongoing between its set-up committee and the American.

“We have given the Technical Committee the go-ahead to hold talks with Randy Waldrum as we consider an extension of his current contract with the NFF,” NFF President Ibrahim Gusau told the media.

According to Gusau, the committee “have to do this quickly as the team has a Women’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match next week.”

However, Waldrum may get fresh Assistants if he eventually agrees to a contract extension. This is contained in a communique made public after the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the federation held in Uyo last Sunday.

“The Board resolved to be thorough and ensure meritocracy in the composition of new coaching crews for the various Women National Teams (Super Falcons, Falconets and Flamingos) within the shortest possible time, as the Super Falcons and Falconets have crucial qualifying fixtures for major championships in a matter of weeks,” part of the communique read.

This part of the communique generated a lot of reactions amongst football lovers who thought it’s a total overhaul of the coaching crew of the teams listed.

However, gathered that, it’s not a total overhaul as many anticipated, but little changes to the crew.

The Super Falcons will engage Sao Tome and Principe’s women next week in a WAFCON qualifier match.

  1. It’s clear that the biggest enemy to Nigeria Football is the NFF. They don’t care about the game but lining their pockets with money. I wonder how many of them have taken pay cuts. The state of pitches in the country are a disgrace , the league has not yet commenced. No Nigeria Referee has been selected for the next AFCON , it all boils down to the NFF
