Super Falcons coach Thomas Dennerby may be leaving the team if report coming from the team camp is anything to go by.
Dennerby has pointed interference as the reason for his threat to exit the position.
A top official of the Nigeria Football Federation was reported by Brila.net to have blackmailed Super Falcons players for going public over unpaid allowances and bonuses.
Dennerby, who led Nigeria to second round place at 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France, is not happy with interference and is reported to have left Nigeria after Tokyo 2020 Olympics qualifier against Algeria at the Agege Stadium on September 3.
“Dennerby complained that some NFF officials were making his job difficult for some selfish reasons.” A source told Brila.
“These officials ensured that some players, who complained that they were being owed allowances and winning bonuses, were shut out of the national team.
“He got angry that these people have taken their activities to his team selection and decided the best thing to do was to go away. But we are trying to talk to him and address his concerns in the interest of the nation, ” the source said.
Nigeria has a double header against Ivory Coast in the next round of qualifiers and the 30 invited players are expected to start arriving camp on Monday.
