12 August 2015, 15:18

Lagos - With the Nigeria Football Federation in search of a substantive coach for the senior women’s football team, the Super Falcons, former midfielder Maureen Mmadu has signified her interest in becoming the next head coach of the team.

“If Nigeria needs my assistance and if I am called to come help my country I will be available,” she told Hot FM.

“Why won’t I be available? It is my country and I will serve them with my whole heart. I have gotten a lot of experience here in Norway because I have been coaching for two years now.

“I have worked with a lot of top coaches here in Norway so I think if I am given the opportunity (to coach the Super Falcons) I am going to do my best. I am going to change the way the African mentality works in terms of football.

“But it is not up to me, it is up to Nigeria and if God says it is my time I will get it. Two or three years ago I wasn’t ready, but now if I am given the opportunity I will do a very good job,” Mmadu posited.

The NFF have been looking out to hire a replacement to current interim coach, Christopher Danjuma, with reports having it that they are eyeing an expatriate to handle the team.
