SAN FRANCISCO, May 22, (THEWILL) – Super Falcons striker, Desire Oparanozie, says she would love to return to the Nigerian soccer league if the conditions are right because according to her the league is worth it.

The former Guingamp FC striker spoke in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital.

“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.”

The striker is also disturbed about the long delay in appointing a coach for the Super Falcons stressing that this vacuum can disrupt the growth of the team and she urged the NFF to focus on getting a top quality coach to manage the team.

She said: “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 enjoined the NFF to motivate the girls properly by giving them their remuneration as at when due.

“The federation should pay Super Falcons’ allowances and bonuses in line with the girls’ output and honour they bring to the country.”
