The contract of both Waldrum and the head coach of the Super Eagles Jose Peseiro have expired but there is a vote of confidence for Peseiro, however, NFF boss, Ibrahim Gusau, in an interview with foremost sports journalist Mitchell Obi has hinted that the federation are in a lookout for a new manager.

“When the contract of the coach expires, we have to allow the Technical Committee to do their job and make a proper recommendation.

“Next month, the Super Falcons will play in the Olympic Qualifiers and before that time we must have decided on who will be the coach.”
