Oliseh Leads Eagles Race!

Oliseh Leads Eagles Race!

Former Super Eagles captain, Sunday Oliseh tops the list of likely successors the Nigeria Football Federation is considering as replacement for Stephen Keshi if on-going talks about a possible contract extension fails.

Oliseh, once a fierce critic of the NFF headed by Aminu Maigari has apparently patched up his differences with the football house and has now become the beautiful bride and top choice for the about-to-be-vacant position.

According to a report on a football website, SL10, Oliseh is the number one name among top members of the executive committee of the NFF.
Quoting an unnamed source,the website reported that Oliseh actually came tops in an interview when the position became vacant a few years age.

“It’s not a secret that Sunday Oliseh is the anointed one among us at the NFF, and the reason is obvious. Six years ago with Keshi in attendance as well, Oliseh came out tops after an interview session but we were scared of gambling on him because he has no coaching experience prior to that interview, we asked him to understudy Amodu Shuaibu but he refused.

“The closest after him was then under-23 coach Samson Siasia but at that time he was preparing the Olympic team for the Beijing Olympics and we asked him to pick one as he can’t combine both, he opted for the Olympic team, We had no choice than to give it to Amodu Shuaibu. With all due respect to Keshi back then he came last in the interview among them all, but before Samson Siasia was appointed they were the only two in contention, so when Siasia failed we hired him but we still have it at the back of our mind that Sunday Oliseh will one day be our coach and there is no better time for it to come to pass than now”

    No doubt, one of the best midfielder Nigeria have ever had,but being a good field -player does not automatically qualifies you t o be a good coach.I will stil prefer Stephen Keshi because of his immense experience in the game.The Nation cup qualifier is by the door ,even at that 2018 world cup could far but the earlier we start search for the lost black-sheep the better .

  • Just allow keshi to continue with he good work. he came last in the interview, but has achieved what no other sound local coaches have ever achieved in ONLY 2 YEARS. which way Nigeria?

    It’s been long awaited. Oliseh is the man I think will lead us to the expected hight and it’s better we install him quickly so that he can start building a team for the nations cup and the next World Cup qualifiers. We should not make things difficult for him by not appointing him on time. The planning for the next World Cup starts now.

  • Rubbish! How is this unverified junk news?

    Stop feeding craps to the reading public

    Our problem is not nff, agreed Keshi has coaching experience and records while oils eh had better documents and technical knowledge, why will not both of them agree to work together to save Nigeria even on the same salary scale since nff can afford? During this World Cup, we learnt that coach Amadu, shegun adebugmi, James Peter, Christian chikwu, Kanu nwanko, victor epegba, garba lawan etc were part of nff delegation to give Keshi support and advises whenever necessary, or even to visit the camp and boost the morals of our players but Keshi refused and call it interference, you see is not all about chief coach, is about total commitments and determination to serve ur country, where is Keshi when coach Manu garba, Emmanuel am unlike, nduka eh bade put heads together and won U17 World Cup in Dubai 2013, I think our ex players has to unite to move Nigeria forward pls.
