Uche heads to U.S. for coaching course

SUPER Falcons’ former coach, Eucharia Uche, left Nigeria on Thursday for the United States (U.S.) to complete a U.S. Soccer Federation ‘A’ licence coaching course.

Uche holds the license ‘B’ and is expected back home later in January. The Nigerian former striker was relieved of her Falcons job after she failed to qualify Nigeria for the 2012 London Olympic Games. She hopes to return to her post when the NFF announces coaches for the women national team.

Uche told SuperSport.com that she wants to be atop her chosen profession hence the need to upgrade herself with the latest information in the sector: “My desire is to get to the top of my profession so as to be able to compete better in the world and among the world’s elite coaches in future, hence the need to keep studying and updating myself with the current development.”

The FIFA instructor informed SuperSport.com that she was hopeful of returning to her duty post whenever NFF named the coaches for Falcons. She added: “I am hopeful of being named the Super Falcons’ coach.

“People may have their views about me and my performance as Falcons’ coach but nobody will deny me the honour of having led the team to win gold in South Africa 2010 African Women Championship, among others.”
