Veteran coach Ismaila Mabo has advised the Nigeria Football Federation not to hire a foreign coach for the Super Falcons.
Falcons are still without a coach since the departure of former boss Thomas Dennerby who left the position over 12 months ago.
The NFF, in a statement released last week, revealed that a firm has been tasked to interview the candidates for the vacant role, however, Mado who once handled the eight-time African champions has now advised to Federation to hire a Nigerian coach for the team.
“As far as I am concerned, my stance still remains that I do not support the idea of the NFF employing an expatriate to coach our women’s national team,” Mabo told brila.
“I think the NFF should look inward and save us unnecessary wastage that occurs when we hire a foreigner to coach our women.
“It is my belief that some of the coaches handling the women’s football clubs in our league can deliver a good set of players for the national team, just like I and some others did during our days at the national team.” He said.
Mabo concluded that recruiting a foreign coach for the senior women’s national team will be a wastage of resources.
