Former Super Eagles coach, Paul Hamilton, has asked the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to hire a quality coach for the Super Falcons.

The federation has been in the lookout for a new coach after Edwin Okon was relieved of his job due to the team’s disappointing campaign at the 2015 FIFA World Cup in Canada where Nigeria crashed out in the group stages.

Despite giving the responsibility to Christopher Danjuma on a temporal basis, the Super Falcons failed to qualify for the Rio Olympics and also could not pick a medal at the just concluded African Games.

However, Hamilton admitted that NFF must make effort to hire a coach who has interests in promoting women’s football.

“When a qualified somebody comes (coach), he or she will know what’s on ground then that will be the starting point for him to start working well. It is important to get a coach who has interest in women’s football and getting the support of the federation. I know a lot of people will be applying for the job but we need a coach who has the idea of the team.” he said.
