His exit good for football, says Nwosu
FORMER Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, is prepared to meet the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in court after the federation accused him of breach of contract.
According to Sports Nigerian, the NFF are threatening to sue the 42-year-old coach for quitting his post without prior notice to his employers.
But Oliseh is optimistic the court will vindicate him on the false allegations levelled against him.
“They said I was paid for three months (December 2015, January 2016 and February 2016) and half-year rent for July-December 2015. But we will see who is telling lies,” Oliseh said.
“Since they are prepared to expose themselves, I will help them further. My lawyers are studying the reports, and when we meet, we shall know who breached our contractual agreements.”
Oliseh further spoke on his eight-month tenure as Super Eagles coach.
“My time there was a big lesson and unless a holistic change is made in the administrative level, it will be difficult.”
Meanwhile, former international, Henry Nwosu, has described the resignation of Coach Sunday Oliseh as the best thing for Nigeria’s football.
Oliseh last Friday resigned as coach of the Super Eagles stating, “contract violation, lack of support, unpaid wages, benefits to my players assistant coaches and myself,” as reasons for dumping the team.
Speaking to The Guardian yesterday, Nwosu, who wondered why Oliseh took that decision, however, asked if it was possible to have two masters in a ship?
“I think Oliseh resigned because that was the way he wanted it. He sees himself bigger than his employers and it is not possible to have two masters in a boat. What he did as far as I am concerned is very good for the country and it is best for us,” he said.
