The Nigeria Football Federation appears to have taken back its words against the coach of the Super Falcons, Randy Waldrum, after it mandated its Technical Committee to hold discussions with the American, with a view to extending his contract.

It will be recalled that shortly before the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup in Australia/New Zealand, there was no love lost between the NFF and its employee after the coach accused the federation of financial impropriety and undue interference in his job.

Unhappy with the unexpected outburst by the gaffer, the NFF in turn fired back accusing him of gross incompetence. However, Waldrum went ahead to steer the nine-time African champions to the Round of 16 at the World Cup finals, with the Super Falcons unbeaten in regulation time in any of their four matches, before a penalty shootout defeat by England.
