A little over two weeks ago, the NFF announced plans to appoint a foriegn coach in charge of the team, but Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) chairman, Dilichukwu Onyedinma has made a case for female national team, Super Falcons’ coach, Chris Danjuma, who failed to win a medal with the squad at the recent Africa Games in Brazzaville, Congo.

Un six games under the Nasarawa Amazon coach in charge of Falcons, they failed to qualify—for the second year in a row—for the Olympics and suffered three straight defeats to unfancied countries like Cameroon and Cote d’Ivoire to finish fourth at the All African Games.

While many Nigerians are calling for Danjuma’s head, after he lost twice to Cote d’Ivoire and finished fourth at the AG 2015, Dilichukwu has hinted that the gaffer could stay on the job, despite his disastrous short spell in charge.

Onyedinma, who is also a board member of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) opined that Danjuma would have done better in Brazzaville had he gained the full complement of over-seas-based players for the competition.
