READERS REACT: Who’s To Blame For Oliseh’s Resignation?

Sunday Oliseh dropped a bombshell in the middle of Thursday night/wee hours of Friday when he resigned from his position as Super Eagles coach, citing contract violations and lack of support from his employers,  the Nigeria Football Federation.
While the timing of the resignation was a surprise,  coming just four weeks before key Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Egypt, recent happenings pointed to Oliseh’s eventual exit.
The coach and his assistants were owed salaries and allowances for several months and his players at the African Nations Championship were not properly treated.
When Oliseh chose to vent his frustrations through a no-holds-barred YouTube video following criticism that trailed his team’s CHAN failure, his relationship with his employers reached breaking point.
Although Oliseh apologised for his video rant, irreparable damage seemed to have been done to his relationship with the NFF.
Now that it is all over, who is to blame? Should Oliseh have resigned? Did the NFF treat him right? What should be the next step?
Have your say.

    Going by his antecedents as a former player and captain of the Super Eagles, i am not suprised by his actions. Without doubt his reign as the Manager of the National Team would go down the annals of history as one of the most controversial coaches this nation has produced. Starting from his appointment to all the hype of being the NEW GUARDIOLA of Africa to the sudden and abrupt premature retirements of 2 experienced players in which more could have joined to the ugly revelations he made in Rwanda about using his money and ultimately culminating in the  disgraceful youtube rant.He was simply not matured enough to handle the team period. However, the bulk of the blame goes to the N.F.F. for hiring him in the first place with all the pomp and pageantry attached to it, knowing fully well his low level of temperance and arrogance. Besides why offer an amount you cannot afford to pay. The solution for now is to use either Sia-sia or Amuneke in temporary capacity for now.

    Olise has his own fault but the NFF should carry the greater blame because he was practically begged to come coach the Super Eagles. Amodu Shaibu should take over until a well seasoned coach is properly hired and let the NFF put their house in order.

    The NFF is to blame in the first instance for giving the topmost job in Nigerian football to a rookie coach, who they also know his level of patriotism. They don’t have the best interest for Nigeria football, for so many years after a discernable, purposeful, and attractive playing pattern that suits our playing style was established in the early 90’s, they found it difficult to build on it, engaging coaches without first ascertaining whether their football philosophy is in line with what they want to build on. They will continue doing same provided their personal interest are covered

    With all the Change Mantra in Nigeria today, this is hardly the case. I totally agree with the Minister of Youth and Sports, when he said the crisis in the NFF is that of large Egos that need to be assuaged. Nigerians do not know the difference between serving the Nation and serving personal interests. It is always the person or sectarian group interests that come first, rather than Nigeria’s. The process through which Oliseh was engaged as the head Coach of the Super Eagles, the sacking of Keshi, the antecedents of Oliseh himself, are all good pointers to this sad tale. It seems our Administrators only respect the white-man-coach, at the expense of Nigerians, via the corrupt practices involved in expatriate employment process. We do not know the truth of the matter between Oliseh, his employment and matters arising before his resignation. We are only aware of the dramatics and events since his employment. How now can we pass the buck? Who are we to blame when we don’t know the facts of the matter? We need CHANGE!

    As far as i'm concerned, NFF carries the major bulk of the blame, though Oliseh may have his own, but i will blame NFF. If they've hired a foreigner, is this the way they are going to treat him, with unpaid salary, lack of motivation, uncondusive working environment and so on. Someone request for its opponet video clip since July last year, they cud not provide, but they cud made provision for capacity building in UK, flying around. Lets call a spade a spade, this NFF are not serious, see what happen with the budget they presented to FG, series of mistakes and plenty of copy and paste in this present era. Oliseh is not the type of suffering and smiling people, he has voice out his anger and people take it for arrogance. Don't forget that Westerhof, the most successful eagles coach was able to achieve his fit because of the direct access that he had with the FG, suppose he it has to be with the set of the pple at NFF then, i promised the guy will fail woefully. Therefore, i will blame NFF for all the mess we're experiencing in our football

  6. i nevered surpported olise’s emploment as the coach for the super eagles from day one .for the following reasons
    1.he was in experience, as he has nevered coached any knowned national team.i expected he should have been allowed to have started with u-17
    2.his temprament is too high and therefor would not be good for coaching. it indeed showed during his outburst through his yuotube.he could not take critictism.
    3.hurried way he was employed didnt help matters.gave the impression that he was a super human being. his salary was paid up front. and he expected subsequent ones would be paid in the same maner.but nnf could not leave to expectations.
    4 .the nnf president is a green horn. has he won any competion eg. challenge cup,league or any african cups be it the champion league or the lesser african competion

  7. Sad he had to resign 4 weeks before the crucial qualifier. I blame both parties for allowing this to happen to our football. I wish him well, and NFF should think fast and quick to select someone better and sound. Goodbye Oliseh.

  8. Not at all suprised at Oliseh's resignation. Coaching is more than theoretical knowledge. He surely lacked man management skills and had not the experience and right temperament to coach our National side. The bigger blame goes to the NFF who employed him in the first place. I hope he takes something from this experience as he moves on in life.

  9. I PRAISE OLISEH FOR DOING THE NEEDFUL, IT WAS HIS PATRIOTISM THAT MADE HIM SPEND HIS MONEY TO FEED HIS PLAYERS IN SOUTH AFRICA,IT WAS HIS PATRIOTISM THAT MADE HIM TAKE UP THE JOB AND GAVE HIS BEST EVEN AT THE RISK OF HIS LIFE,IT WAS HIS PATRIOTISM THAT MADE HIM CALL THE ATTENTION OF THE WHOLE WORLD TO THE UGLY SITUATION OF HIS BACKROOM STAFF AND PLAYERS,IT IS SHARE PATRIOTISM THAT MADE HIM RESIGN NOT WAITING FOR A WEEK TO EGYPT MATCH BEFORE TENDERING HIS LETTER.WHETHER U LIKE HIS OUTSPOKENNESS OR NOT HE LED EAGLES TO PLAY 14 MATCHES HE LOST 2 INSPITE THE UNFAVOURABLE CONDITION,SOME HATERS OF PROGRESS SAID HE FAILED AND HE SHOULD GO OR ELSE THEY WILL GO.NOW OLISEH HAS LEFT WITH HIS DIGNITY AND RESPECT WHICH MAJORITY OF DELTALITES ARE KNOWN FOR, AS AT THIS TIME HIS ONYIBO ASSISTANT IS IN THE HOSPITAL BEGGING THE FEDERATION TO PAY HIM HIS MONEY TO OFFSET HIS BILLS,NO WORD YET,HIS ANOTHER ASSISTANT HAS BEEN AXED, CONTRARY TO THE TERMS OF THE CONTRACT,SOME NIGERIANS NEVER SAW ANYTHING BAD, ALL THEY WANTED IS WIN AT ALL COST,OLISEH AND HIS CREW CAN GO TO HELL.

  10. Suspend all Super Eagles campaigns including World Cup indefinitely, no friendly matches, no money, no unity. Shame on NFF.

  11. To be honest, i commend you guys writing here.check all the coaches that have been hired by nff, which coach have been paid properly, which coach have be given all the timely support. Instead of saying nff should patch a broken egg, we need federal govt to invite efcc to lock all this useless nff members up. this nonsense has to stop. this has been going on for generations and you think we should choose a new coach quickly? I am sorry but all the past and present nff members should be locked up and charged to court. Can't we respect the country Nigeria for once. and i think we should make a national coach position electorate in nature. like we vote for the president. you cannot just appoint anyone based on what some fools think.
    How can you not pay your coach his salary, whether he is a good coach or bad coach i don;t care, its not today we have been employing bad coach. but this is rubbish.

    Are you asking me ? or you are suppose to answer me?  its only when that big man is been eliminated out of Nigeria that things will come back in good shape again in every sector in Naija. (MR CORRUPION)  

  13. We were all taken in by Oliseh’s articulated football analysis with Supersport. He was also a member of FIFA technical department. Who will not be taken in. So when he was appointed, we clapped for NFF and to be frank, it was a good idea. But the way he was treated by the NFF is not acceptable anywhere in the world. It is only in Nigeria that this can happen. You hold his salary. You starved him of fund to run the team, even at a competition level making him to spend his own money. When he complain, he becomes the enemy. You sacked his assistant, Babanjida, without his knowledge. His coach that is sick you cared less and refused to give his just one month salary to take care of his bills. It was a case of the hatred for Oliseh that was transferred to Babanjida and the coach. The allowances of the players you refused to pay it delayed and it was a sin for them or the coach on their behalf to complain. What is this!!! This is pure wickedness. Oliseh did the right thing resigning. If all the coaches can have the boldness like Oliseh to take this kind of action, the NFF guy would have been awake to their responsibility. As it stand NFF shoguy be given the FIFA treatment. No coach should agree to take the job until this is done.

  14. Tanx 2 God, Oliseh is gone. Yes NFF has her own share of d blame, Oliseh was too arrogant, lacks experience and didn’t even trust his assistants. His human mgt was very poor. He hd bad influence on his colleagues as a player and later captain. It was even said that he wrote match plans in French 2 confuse his assistants. Tanx 2 NFF for acting fast in the appointment of immediate replacements with regards to our next matches. Oliseh’s departure has saved us more embarrassment. Let’s plan from here. Can we learn from here?.
