    Now that the head coach, Sunday Oliseh is unable to be with the team due to illness (May God heal him, it can happen to anyone), I think he should throw in the towel. It’s not enough to be coaching the team through Skype from his sick bed. A coach must be physically present with the team to make a meaningful impact on the squad. In addition, such scenario could make the squad suffer some damaging psychological setbacks.
