Oliseh: Why I Resigned As Super Eagles Coach

Sunday Oliseh has explained succinctly the major reasons for quitting the Nigeria senior national team, the Super Eagles eight months after being appointed, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Oliseh who had been in a running battle with his employers over what he termed uncondusive working conditions told Completesportsnigeria.com that he was irked by the underground moves by the Nigerian Football Federation to sack him and the constant violations of his contractual agreement.

Oliseh was irked by the fact that the President Of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick tried to hire Frenchman Herve Renard soon after the Home Eagles crashed out of the group stages of the African Nations Champions.

“They had their motives and what I did was in the best interest of the country,” Oliseh began.

“While I was coach of the team they tried to hire Renard who turned them down citing three major reasons,” Oliseh told Completesportsnigeria.com in the wee hours of Friday.

“When I sought their aid to effectively carry out my duties I was ignored and instead of the helping me getting the players to give their best and placing them in a very good conditions at an advantages to the team play, they had plans to derail the progress of the team’s chances.

“The most important objective is for the Super Eagles Of Nigeria to qualify to the next AFCON and the World Cup 2018,”
