NFF Boss Pinnick Apologises To Nigeria’s Neglected Women’s Team

The president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has apologised for neglecting Nigeria’s women national team.
The Super Falcons haven’t played a single match since winning the 2016 African Women Cup of Nations (AWCON).

Last year Nigeria beat Cameroon to lift their tenth AWCON trophy.

And  few days later, the Super Falcons were protesting to demand payment of their wages.

Since that final in December 2016, Nigeria haven’t played a single match or held an official training session.
“I apologise to them publicly – we have been trying to intensify our efforts in rebuilding the Super Eagles [Nigeria’s men’s team] which we have done,” Pinnick said in an interview with BBC Sport.

“Now we have secured the services of a foreign coach from America [Randy Waldrum] who is going to resume next week.

“We have lined up a couple of matches for them and I have apologised to them because the truth is we wanted to concentrate on the [World Cup] qualifiers [for the men] which was quite intense.”
