It appears former Super Eagles captain, Sunday Oliseh has definitely bitten more than he can chew, having made comments over the interview process that produced Stephen Keshi as the new Super Eagles team.
Chris Green, Chairman of the Nigeria Football Federation Technical Sub-Committe expressed his disappointment and advised him to state the role he wishes to play in Nigerian football "Oliseh's coaching pedigree and assumed capabilities have not been demonstrated; they exist largely in the media. He has to demonstrate those assumed qualities at appropriate levels. As far as we are concerned, he did not react like a true sportsman",
"You would expect someone like him, whom we suppose has sense of maturity and decency, to simply congratulate his former Captain, Mr. Keshi and gracefully accept the decision of the NFF, which has been hailed by the vast majority. Instead, he is saying the wrong things and trying to run the NFF down.
How can Oliseh imagine that he will favourably compete with Keshi in an interview for senior team coaching position? How can anyone reasonably compare someone who has qualified a team to the FIFA World Cup finals and coached two different teams at the African Cup of Nations, at senior level, to someone who has only been dealing with junior ones and pupils?
The NFF is proud to have appointed Keshi and we know he has capacity to take our football to the very top. Oliseh should work harder in the years ahead to earn some stripes in order to qualify to be considered for senior team coaching". He stated.
