Super Falcons striker, Desire Oparanozie, is not happy about the long delay in appointing a coach for the senior women national football team since Thomas Dennerby left the job.
Oparanozie was speaking in Lagos and said that the situation could hamper the Super Falcons’ progression, adding that much attention needed to be given to the team.
According to Guardian sport, the 26-year-old argued that the decision on a new Falcons’ coach should not be gender-based, adding that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) should only focus on getting a quality tactician to manage the Super Falcons.
“The French women national team worked very hard under a conducive atmosphere to get to where they are now.
‘’For Super Falcons to get it right, the administrative aspect has to be okay, but the team does not have all the time in the world considering the level of competition we are getting from other African countries now.”
Like the players of the U.S women national team, the CAF Women Footballer of the Year believes the time is ripe for the Super Falcons to get the same type of treatment in bonuses and camping arrangement like their male counterparts.

She said: “The federation should pay Super Falcons’ allowances and bonuses in line with the girls’ output and honour they bring to the country.”
