Okon Thumbs Up On New Psychologist

By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:

Coach of the Super Falcons, Edwin Okon has commended the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF for hiring a Psychologist for the team for the world cup in Canada.

He stated that the coming of a psychologist will be a massive boost for the technical crew who will now concentrate on the tactical and other aspects of the game.

“The hiring of a Psychologist for the team is good for the team’s development because I personally requested for it. We need somebody to handle that so that I can face my job of coaching the team squarely. We need somebody like kashie to psyche the players up every time we have matches.

“With the presence of the Psychologist now, the job will be a little bit easier for me and the rest of the technical crew”, Okon disclosed.

The new Psychologist Kasia Muoto who has an Anambra father and a Polish mother vowed to bring her wealth of experience to bear in the team and to improve it too.

Muoto who is based in Los Angeles, United States of America, continued “We need to commend the Nigeria Football Federation for employing me and to propel these girls towards having good showing in all the tournaments they would participate in.

“My role here is to support the Head Coach on the psychological aspect and mental readiness and alertness as you know coaching is not just static. You can see the new energy in the team as a result of the new changes” she quipped.
