I Can Never Coach Eagles Again -Sunday Oliseh




Sunday Oliseh,who was the Former Super Eagles coach,  has disclosed that he will never coach the super eagles team again, even if the  opportunity for that was given to him for a second time.

Sunday Oliseh, who had a total of 52 caps for the super eagles, scoring two goals between 1993 and 2002, managed the national team between 2015 and 2016, before quitting abruptly because of an unsolved issue with the NFF, which included not paid salaries.

The former Borussia Dortmund and Ajax midfielder Oliseh disclosed that he would never coach the Eagles again In an Instagram live video chat.
“No, I don’t have the intention of ever coaching the (Super) Eagles again. I loved working with the boys, I love coaching my country, but the atmosphere around it was no longer healthy.

“I didn’t want the job anymore. Health-wise I was not feeling too good; secondly, we were owed salaries. I was spending money on my health and on my team. I just couldn’t die on the job.

“Truth is, we have a foreign coach now and from what I heard and know, he is being paid four times the wages Stephen Keshi and I were paid and these are two players (himself and Keshi) who won trophies for Nigeria.

“I’ve never heard Gernot Rohr complain about wages. Keshi, while he was coaching, was always complaining, when I was coaching for four months, I was unpaid, for six months my assistants were unpaid, so I had to leave the job; we were also being frustrated.”

 Oliseh also said that his plans was to take the team to the next level before he parted ways with his employers, the Nigeria Football Federation.
 “I had good plans for the team. You will notice that at a time I brought in (Wilfred) Ndidi, Alex Iwobi, Kelechi Iheanacho, young players who are dominating now. I brought in a world-class goalkeeper (Carl Ikeme) because I felt the old breed were ready to leave.

“The same philosophy I used while with the Eagles was the same philosophy France used at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

“Sometimes you ask yourself questions about Nigeria. You won laurels for the country as a player, you’re doing well as a coach, you were about qualifying for the World Cup and you’re unpaid for four months.”
