World football governing body, FIFA has sent its deepest sympathy to NFF President, Aminu Maigari, over the death of former Super Falcons’ Head Coach, Ntiero Effiom.
In a letter addressed to Maigari, FIFA president, Sepp Blatter noted that the late Effiom was “an outstanding coach and will be remembered for his various accomplishments and the contributions he made to the women’s game in Nigeria.”
“Allow me on behalf of FIFA and the worldwide family of football, to extend my deepest condolences to the football community of Nigeria, and most importantly to his family, friends and loved ones. We hope that in some way, our words of support may help bring a little bit of peace and solace in this time of sadness.”
Ntiero led to the Super Falcons to win the African Women Championship in 2006 and was also at the helm of affairs when Pelican Stars were dominating the Women Pro League.
