Super Falcons midfielder, Ngozi Okobi-Okeoghene has tipped former handler of the women’s senior national team, Coach Florence Omagbemi, as the best choice for the Super Falcons’ job as the Nigeria Football Federation are planning to get a new one intensifies.

The NFF President, Amaju Pinnick, had announced on Thursday via Instagram Live on concluded arrangement to employ a head coach of the highest quality possible for the Super Falcons, saying that consultants are already on it and a sum of money set aside for the coach’s remuneration.

According to Guardian, Okobi-Okeoghene, express unhappiness that the Falcons are yet to get a new coach after the exit of Thomas Dennerby, stated that the way competent former handlers were sacked in the past was worrisome and that’s one reason the team has remained stunted.

" I am not happy that we don’t have a coach till now. This is not supposed to happen because this issue has been on for over a decade. 

" You just bring in new coaches and you want the best from the team, All these are not going to help us in any way; changing coaches either foreign or Nigerians, is not going to help the team in general. You can’t get the best performance from such kind of arrangement.

" They (NFF) should get somebody that they can trust. Even if they don’t trust the person, let the person just be allowed to do the job. We’ve had good coaches that they have relieved of their jobs. I am so surprised why those things are happening,” she said.

Okobi-Okeoghene, who plays for Eskilstuna United of Sweden, added, " Omagbemi is one coach that I played under and I noticed her impact. A coach is supposed to be a friend to the team and Coach Omagbemi is one perfect person at that. 

" She not only played for the national team before, but also because she is a woman, who understands how players feel. I think she is one perfect person for the job.

" I would prefer local coaches to be appointed, because they are the ones that understand the players more. They know what the girls are like and they saw us grow. Unlike the foreign coaches who just come and play us based on what they saw on the TV.

" Regardless of what happens next, it’s none of my business who comes in because the girls are ready for the new coach pattern, as we will try to do what they want us to do. 

But, I still insist that a female coach will get the best out us because she will understand the girls more. Yes, it’s true that a man will really want to go hard on the women and that also helps, but a woman understands better. 

She would be like a mother in the house that we can relate more with just as I relate more with my mother than my daddy and discuss some feminine issues with,” she stated.
