EXCLUSIVE By Johnny Edward:
Former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has told Completesportsnigeria.com that he turned down three offers from two Southern African teams in order to focus more on his FIFA duties.
Oliseh, who returned to the FIFA Technical Study Group (TSG) weeks after he quit the Super Eagles job in February, had earlier declined a lucrative offer from an unnamed Chinese club.
“The Nigerian job was an eye-opener for me and I think I want to focus more on my job with FIFA at the moment,” Oliseh told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“There are offers at the moment and I have turned down three teams from the Southern part of Africa.”
Oliseh will be at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil with the FIFA Technical Study Group.
“For a while I’d love to analyse matches at international tournaments going on and learn the latest trends in the game and also develop myself more,” the former Nigeria captain added.
Oliseh was in charge of the Super Eagles for seven months.
