Nigeria coach Oliseh resigns
Nigeria head coach Sunday Oliseh has resigned from his post citing contract violations, lack of support and unpaid wages.
Oliseh, 41, who took over the Super Eagles post in July 2015 after the sacking of Stephen Keshi made the announcement on his official twitter page on Friday morning.
“I feel fortunate, blessed and eternally grateful for having had the honour to play, captain and coach this great Nation of ours, Nigeria.” Oliseh tweeted.
“Due to contract violations, lack of support, unpaid wages, benefits to my players, assistant coaches and myself, I resign as Super Eagles Chief Coach,”
Oliseh in an interview with super sport said: “I asked the technical committee for videos and analysis of Egypt since July. Since then I haven’t got it. I am not blaming NFF for anything. We all know the situation in the country right now. However, I must state that there are challenges we are facing.”
Oliseh has also not been at good terms with the NFF recently following a rant on his YouTube channel that criticized his critics as ‘insane’ earlier this month but he followed it up with an apology.
Oliseh has been in charge of 11 games, winning five, drawing four and losing two and sit second in Group G of the Afcon 2017 qualifiers with four points, two behind table leaders Egypt.
Nigeria will host Egypt in the Afcon 2017 qualifier at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna on March 25 before playing the return leg four days later in Egypt.
