Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has clarified that his recent video rant was not directed at the Nigerian public, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Oliseh labelled his critics “insane” in the aftermath of the flak he received after failing to lead the Eagles beyond the group stages of the 2016 African Nations Championship.
“Please when I spoke of critics I did not mean the general public of Nigeria!” Oliseh wrote on Twitter on Tuesday night. “I would never dare refer to my beloved country men as insane!
“How dare I Insult 170 million people who I love and have shown me so much love. Please forgive the error of editing! God bless you all.”
Oliseh initially had Nigerians’ backing in the face-off between him and his employers but the video seemed to turn the tide against him.
He has also since apologised to the Nigeria Football Federation who felt it was improper of him to make the controversial video.
