Former Super Falcons Coach and Falcons Captain Florence Omagbemi has turned down the offer of the position of assistant coach by the Nigeria Federation Football .

Omagbemi , who is based in United State said through a close family that NFF offer her the post of an assistant coach with the order to relocate back to Nigeria as a condition to get the job .

“Omagbemi told a senior member of her family that she won’t accept the offer,” the source said. “Not that she is not ready to return to coach the team, her complaint was that the order by the NFF that she must relocate from the United States immediately was too harsh. She felt the NFF did not want to give her the job in the first place.”

The source continues: “Omagbemi did not relocate from the U.S. before she led the Super Falcons to win the Women’s Nations Cup title in 2016. When she was appointed assistant coach to Falconets, Omagbemi did not relocate from the United States before she guided the team to the final of FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Japan. So, why giving her such harsh condition when the NFF is not even giving her the position of the chief coach this time?”

 

Super Falcons has been without a coach since 2019 when Swedish Coach Thomas  Dennerby resigned, in his absence  Christopher Danjuma was made an interim manager .
