New Super Falcons coach, Randy Waldrum has stated he is fully focused on contributing to the success of the African champions at the global stage.
The 64-year-old, former Trinidad and Tobago and the US U23 women’s team coach was announced as the head coach of the Super Falcons on Monday, replacing former coach Thomas Dennerby, who left the post for personal reasons a year ago.
In a interview with Goal, Waldrum said, “I want everyone to know that I am extremely excited about being your coach for the Super Falcons.
“It’s been my dream for some time now. I
appreciate Mr [Amaju] Pinnick and his faith in me and our staff to bring the Super Falcons to new heights.
“I also understand the full commitment that it takes for my time, for training camps, games, scouting, player management, staff development, and of course team development.
“These expectations are very clear and I’m anxious to get started. In fact, I will be the one pushing the federation for
more opportunities to prepare and train. I’m quite sure.
“I’ve already been working and I have a ten-year plan I’m anxious to share with the federation in order to prepare our young players in the country now for future years as national team players.
“Our stars of the 2027 and 2031 World Cups are between 10-12 years old currently, so let’s get them in the proper environment now.”
Even though the duration of his contract has not been made public, Waldrum is expected to lead the Super Falcons to the 2022 African Women’s Cup of Nations and qualify for the 2023 Women’s World Cup.
