Kadiris Ikhana Resigns After Super Falcons AWC Fiasco by supereagle(m): 5:43am On Nov 13, 2012
FOLLOWING the unimpressive performance of the Super Falcons at the African Women Championship (AWC) held in Equatorial Guinea, the team’s chief coach, Ikhana Kadiri, yesterday in Abuja resigned his appointment.

The coach, while apologising to the nation for the team’s performance in Equatorial Guinea, accepted full responsibility for the failure, which saw the country finishing fourth for the first time in the history of the competition.

Ikhana was mandated in his contract signed on April 1 this year to, among other things, qualify the team for the 2012 AWC and ensure the senior women national team qualified and played in at least the semifinals of the competition.

He said his inability to fulfill his personal desire to bring the trophy to Nigeria from the championship informed his decision to quit the stage, stressing that he would continue to support the development programme of the federation.

Former soldier Ikhana had before the tournament kicked off said he would not wait to be fired if he failed at the AWC.

“There is a contract and the contract is clear. I am a principled person. If I fail to win the AWC I will not wait for the NFF, I know what to do,” he had said.

Ikhana is just seven months into a four-year contract, which pays him N3 million a month.

The Enyimba, Kano Pillars and Kwara United former coach led the Falcons to its worse ever result, losing for the first time to South Africa’s Bayana Bayana and finishing fourth for the first time in the history of the AWC.

A Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) top official had before the coach’s latest move said, “Ikhana knows the demands of his contract. So, he should know what to do because the federation will work with the document.”

The Nigerian FA tasked him to win the 2012 African Women’s Championship (AWC) in Equatorial Guinea.

The Guardian learnt that Ikhana was given the option to resign after the loss to South Africa in the AWC semifinal rather than face the ignominy of being sacked.

The path of honour

Exactly what Siasia should have done when the Super Eagles failed to qualify for AFCON 2012 instead of lobbying and fighting tooth & nail to remain on the job.

Too bad the Falcons recorded their worst ever performance in the AWC under Kadiri Ikhanna who has some impressive achievements under his belt.

for me,the resignation should have come immediately after we lost to South Africa because losing to South Africa for the first time in history is more painful than losing the tournament.

Wise man = 3 million naira (basic salary) x 7 months = 21 million naira earned to fail at a job!

Square peg in a round hole...Left to me ..the whole team including coaches and NFF delegation should brought back Nigeria and detained @ dodan barracks for 3weeks and giving special lecture on patriotism. Next time u will represent your country well

What a sad end to Kadiri Ikhana's reign as Falcons Head coach. I don't think he was cut out for female football.

I'll recommend the likes of Evumena, Ntiero Effiom, Ann Agumanu Chiejine or even Peter Dedevbo as potential replacements. These individuals have a wealth of experience coaching ladies.

Someone led our under 20 to the finals of the world cup in 2010 only to lose to Germany the hosts. Where is that man? There is no continuity when someone does well. Its time, Precious Dede, Nkwocha, Stella Mbachu, Rita Chikwelu(who i didnt see her influence in the tournament) all resigned.

They are simply blocking the way for younger, more skillful and agile ones. The SA team that beat Nigeria, have players that watched these our players when they started playing for us over a decade ago. This isnt right.

Even the under 20 team that lost to USA earlier this year, is better than this Senior team if they are played together.

Nigerian coaches are serioulsy lagging behind and they never learn.
