We want Oliseh to learn from Guardiola, Enrique – Pinnick

President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has denied reports in the media which suggested the body was looking to hire a “heavyweight coach” to help with the Super Eagles attack.

Pinnick once again insisted that the NFF was ‘100%’ satisfied with the work Sunday Oliseh has done, but would like him to interface with top coaches in Europe.

“So far 100% Oliseh has delivered for us and we are very impressed with him and have had no cause to regret his appointment. I was reading in the media that we were in the market to shop for a “heavyweight” coach; that is completely wrong,” Pinnick told Completesportsnigeria.com.

“What I said was if goalscoring was a problem there’s need to manufacture how to score goals. If it means interfacing with some coaches who have that knack for their teams to score goals do that I will sponsor it.

“For instance, in the English Premier League, Manchester City is the highest scoring team in England just like Bayern Munich and Barcelona in Germany and Spain.

“There’s no ill saying Oliseh should interface or do an internship with the coaches of these clubs on how to score goals. That’s the level we the FA are looking at to help him succeed well.”

Pinnick also spoke about his ambition for the growth of Nigerian football.

“Where we are going to is very ambitious. I want Nigerian clubs to be quoted on the Nigerian stock exchange. I want these clubs to be independent and sustained well on a long term basis,” he added.

“What we need now is the passion to make it work.”
