The former Super Eagles left-back has called out Randy Waldrum for staying abroad while working for Nigeria

Ifeanyi Udeze, a former Super Eagles and Panathinaikos defender has condemned the practice of having a foreign coach stay abroad while working with the national team.

Udeze, on Brila F.M said it’s an act that must stop as it is disrespectful to Nigeria.

Waldrum is a college soccer coach in the United States and works with the Super Falcons on the side, a situation Udeze said must be abolished to get the most of the coaches.

He described the Nigerian job as a side hustle for the coach.

“Nigeria national coaches living abroad and only coming home for their matches is wrong and it must stop.

“As for the Super Falcons, so long Randy Waldrum does two jobs and in fact considers the Super Falcons job as his ‘side hustle’ he’s not the ideal coach for the Nigeria women’s national team.

“In fact it is the Super Falcons job that should be his number one and only job. A lot of things have been taken for granted in Nigeria and that is why these coaches behave the way they do.

“We need a coach who will take the Falcons as his main and only job.”

The Super Eagles have two friendly matches slated for September and November against Algeria and Portugal respectively.
