Oparanozie expresses concern over delayed appointment of Super Falcons coach, raises hope of coming back to play in the Nigeria Women League

By Ilekhuoba Taiye - Super Falcons forward, Desire Oparanozie is uncomfortable and concerned over the delay in assigning a coach for the women national team. Thomas Dennerby parted ways with the Super Falcons after the 2019 Fifa Women World Cup held in France.

She admitted that the competition in African women football is growing rapidly as she charged the administration to get it right regarding the Super Falcons as time is no one's friend.

According to Oparanozie, "the French Women National team worked very hard under a conducive atmosphere to get to where they are now. For Super Falcons to get it right, the administrative aspect has to be okay, but the team does not have all the time in the world considering the level of competition we are getting from other African countries now."

She also stated that since the 9th time AWCON champions bring honour to the country, they should be paid both allowances and bonuses like the men's national team.

"The federation should pay Super Falcons’ allowances and bonuses in line with the girls’ output and honour they bring to the country.”
Oparanozie expounded her decision to depart her French club, Guingamp FC while asserting that the feasibility of her coming home to play football is high.

"My contract with my French club ends in June, so I decided not to renew it because I needed to explore other avenues. Some clubs want me to join them, but I have not taken any decision."

"If there is need to come back to Nigeria to play in the women’s league, I will play. Nigeria’s league is tough and competitive, but the only issue is inadequate facilities. I started my football career in Nigerian league, so coming back home will not be a big deal for me," she stated in Lagos.
