The Super Falcons have not had a manager since their former coach Thomas Dennerby left in October 2019. Dennerby resigned after Nigeria failed to qualify for the rescheduled Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
Nigerian women senior national team missed on the Olympics for the second consecutive time following a 1-1 draw against Cote D’Ivoire. The Super Falcons were dumped out on away goals rule after playing out a barren draw in the first leg.
The new manager will be tasked with the responsibility of ensuring Nigeria defend her African title in 2022.
