Super Falcons Coach Thomas Dennerby Resigns From His Role
Swedish international female football coach Thomas Dennerby has resigned from his post as the head coach of Nigeria’s Senior National Women’s Team despite having a year left on his contract.
The resignation came after a dispute with the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) which made Dennerby excuse himself from the Super Falcons’ last two games.
The Swede was not on the touchline when Nigeria played out a goalless and 1-1 draw in a two-leg tie against Cote d’Ivoire to crash out of the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.
He also failed to show up for a reconciliation meeting arranged by Nigeria’s sports minister Sunday Dare and instead sent in his resignation letter.
I have personally stepped into the matter of Thomas Dennerby, the Coach of Super Falcons. I received a brief this morning and will proceed to seek a quick resolution to ensure he continues to Coach Nigeria’s female team.
