Super Eagles head coach, Sunday Oliseh has claimed that he was approached by an unnamed top African nation (believed to be Cameroun) last year but turned down the offer.
Oliseh, 41, revealed at one of the sessions of the Social Media Week on Thursday that the offer from the African country came in just three months after he took charge of Nigeria's Super Eagles.
"I must state that within three months of coaching the Super Eagles, I got an offer from a very top African nation to become the coach of their national team, but I turned it down," Oliseh spokes via Skype from his base in Belgium.
Oliseh buttressed that there have been improvement in the style of play of the Super Eagles and result-wise as the team have lost just once in competitive matches since he took charge.
He wants football analysts in his country to help inform fans with the correct information about the national team.
"We have lost just one competitive match in 14. That is an improvement. The team has improved in areas of movement and passing of the ball, so analysts must give fans the correct information because the team has improved in a very short time, considering that there are new players in the team too," Oliseh said on Thursday.
However, Oliseh's focus is on the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying games against Egypt. He revealed that "there are challenges we are facing."
"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," he disclosed.
Earlier this week, Oliseh had hinted that he "was able to procure via some friends in Egypt some games (of their North African opponents)."
