Super Falcons Are One Big Happy Family- Omagbemi

Nigeria women national team handler Florence Omagbemi has expressed her delight being handed Falcons’ job.

The former national team skipper was named interim coach of the team for the Africa Women’s Championship qualifiers against Senegal. Omagbemi said she is happy to work with her assistants Ann Chiejine and Perpetua Nkwocha, while debunking rumours that she wanted the Falcons’ job on a permanent basis.

She said “I’m hearing this for the first time. It is like breaking news to me. I don't know where the writer got the story from. I know that I was in touch with my other coaches and the Federation. They knew where I was; I took permission to be with the Fifa group. Right now, I am in camp. I worked alongside my other coaches with the girls on Monday morning. I’m very happy with what has been done in my absence with the team. I am 100% with the team and I am happy with everything that's going on. I am happy with my assistants. These are my people. We are one family here in camp.  Ann Chiejine and Perpetua Nkwocha, we all played together for years and we are just like sisters. We are happy to work together now.  When I first heard the news, I was so excited because I believe this is the time to come and give back. We fought battles on the field for Nigeria, now is when to do our job and be role models to the girls”.
