Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has explained why he apologised for criticising the Nigeria Football Federation indirectly in the aftermath of his side’s African Nations Championship early ouster in Rwanda.
Oliseh who in an explosive Youtube video posted on his website slammed his 'critics' for the unfair criticism towards him revealed he also made known his grievances to the Nigerian Football Federation President Amaju Pinnick who called him up on Monday.
But reports emerged on Monday that he had shown remorse and written an apology letter to the NFF barely 24 hours after his outburst.
The former Nigeria captain confirmed to Completesportsnigeria.com in an exclusive chat that he indeed apologised.
“Yes I apologised to the NFF for my earlier comments but I also made known my grievances to the NFF President when he called me on the phone. He admitted that they had their own flaws and I also apologised. It's better for all concerned if we work together in harmony," Oliseh told Completesportsnigeria.com exclusively.
“I was complaining at the way we were treated and how I was being a victim of a clear sacking campaign orchestrated by opposition which hurts so much."
He also hoped that the resolution of the conflict will help the Eagles ahead of next month's crucial 2017 African Nations Cup qualifiers against Egypt.
"With this new assurance from the NFF I pray we set a common goal by winning our subsequent games ahead," he added.
