The Nigeria Football Federation has ordered the interim Head Coach of the Senior Women National Team, Super Falcons to release some players to Clubs who have more than four players in the national camp, for this weekend’s commencement of the Nigeria Women Football League season.
The Women League, put on hold as a result of the preparation of the Super Falcons for the FIFA Women’s World Cup finals in Canada and for the period of the World Cup, will resume this weekend across the federation.
Speaking in Abuja on Thursday, NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi declared that Coach Chris Danjuma must comply with the provision that no Club shall have more than four players in the national camp during the League season.
“Now that the Women Football League season is resuming, we must be considerate to the plight of the Club proprietors. The Super Falcons, as well as the Falconets, are preparing for very important international engagements, but we also realize the importance of the domestic League.
“Any Club that has more than four players in the Falcons’ camp will enjoy the services of the remaining number. For example, eight players from Rivers Angels have been called to the Falcons’ camp. Four of the players will remain in camp while four will be released to go and play for their Club in the League.
“However, we will not be able to release players from the Falconets’ camp because the team has a World Cup qualifier in Monrovia on July 11.”
