Perpetua Nwocha: I’m not ready to return to Falcons’ job now

Former Super Falcons’ striker, Perpetua Nkwocha, has declared in clear terms that she is not ready to return to the national team set up for now.


The Falcons are currently without a coach since the exit of Swede tactician Thomas Dennerby and there have been suggestions for exinternational to be appointed as his replacement.


Speaking on a TV programme monitored by our correspondent, Nkwocha currently the head coach of Clemensnäs IF in the Swedish Women’s Football Division 2, says she is currently pre-occupied with her job in Spain. “Coaching national teams is different from coaching clubsides,” she said.
