Waldrum Has Apologized For His Comments — NFF

Technical director of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Augustine Eguavoen claimed Super Falcons head coach, Randy Waldrum has apologized for his recent comments against the body.

Waldrum and the NFF have recently engaged in war of words over the Super Falcons team list and preparation for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

The American also questioned NFF’s accountability, claiming money meant for the competition were diverted by the football house.

Eguavoen however said the 66-year-old has apologized for his outbursts.

” I am not comfortable with what I’ve been reading. I spoke with him. He apologized, he said he didn’t mean it that way,” Eguavoen told reporters.

” He felt if he speaks with a couple of people things will change, but it is not like that here, Nigeria is different, and Africa is different.

“But we have to do the right thing now, I’ve told him to just remain focused and forget about every other thing.

“Then as soon as the World Cup ends, we know what to do because everything coming up every now and then is a distraction for him and the team.”

The Super Eagles are currently camping in Brisbane ahead of the World Cup.

  • Why should he be apologizing for speaking the bitter truth?
    Anyways, it’s Nigeria FA we’re talking about here, anything goes
    They would have gone ahead to sack him, if they had the balls to

    If waldrum where to be a Nigerian.. I am sure he wil not be at the world cup not to talk of apology
    I can conclude that the technical adviser eguanvoen was the one that apologize on paper.
    Or let see the clip on nff tv where he did the appologism.. dey they thought everyone did slot in for waec . This coach wil run away from Australia unless he has good results…at the competition.

    Apologise for speaking the truth?? Waldrum was saying what we all know about the country’s rotten football federation. The dishonest Eguavoen is putting words of apology into Waldrum’s mouth.

    “…He felt if he speaks with a couple of people things will change, but it is not like that here, Nigeria is different, and Africa is different….”

    This man we call our technical director has no shame. He’s basically just said in Nigeria things never change. The looting, maladministration and lack of professionalism in the management of our football continues with of without Waldrums outbursts.

    Zero shame indeed.

    • When you see the stiffness of Eguavoen head and neck, you will easily understand why he so unreasonable, unintelligent and practically unproductive. That stiff head/neck emphasises a clogged brain.

    Dear Mr. Augustine Eguavon, are you really serious that the coach should forget about everything. If this issue of owing players and coach money for months/years is not solved before the world cup then the NFF that we know may never solve it.
    Before the coach went public, he did a lot of’ behind the scenes and in house diplomacy’ with NFF which was fruitless. You are part of NFF and you know how corrupt your federation is. If you’re so ‘upright’, start cleansing the federation let us see.

  • I found your writing style engaging and easy to follow. The anecdotes you included added a personal touch and made the content relatable.
