Nigeria’s Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare has confirmed there is a fued between the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and coach of Super Falcons, Thomas Dennerby.
Dare, in a series of tweet on Monday night, revealed he was working to resolve the issues between the two parties.
Earlier reports had it that Dennerby had threatened to resign from his position over the crisis, refusing to return to Nigeria since his team defeated Algeria in the Olympics qualifiers on September 3.
The coach reportedly complained about the decision of the NFF to allow some of his players feature at the African Games in Egypt last month without informing him.
“I have personally stepped into the matter of Thomas Dennerby, the coach of Super Falcons,” Dare wrote on Twitter.
“I received a brief this morning and will proceed to seek a quick resolution to ensure he continues to Coach Nigeria’s female team.
”An hour ago I had a constructive conversation on the telephone with Super Falcons Coach Dennerby in Sweden.
“I have also spoken with the NFF leadership. We are working to resolve the issues in the interest of football development.”
Dennerby led the Super Falcons to the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations (AWCON) title last year and to the knockout stage of the FIFA World Cup this year.
