Minister summons NFF over Dennerby’s resignation

Minister of Youth and Sports, Sunday Dare, has assured of his readiness to intervene in what led to the sudden resignation of Super Falcons coach, Thomas Dennerby.

Dare via his twitter handle on Monday said, “I have personally stepped into the matter of Thomas Dennerby, the coach of Super Falcons. I received a brief this morning and will proceed to seek a quick resolution to ensure he continues to coach Nigeria’s female team.”

Dennerby reportedly resigned his appointment as Nigeria’s senior National women team coach a few days ago.

The decision of the coach to resign was due to alleged backlog of salary arrears amidst countless frustrating tendencies by his employer – Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

However, NFF is yet to issue any official statement on the development.

Reports have it that Dennerby reportedly resigned from his post following the persistent interference in selecting players as well as non-payment of his accumulated salaries and allowances by the NFF.
