Ex Golden Eaglets coach, Godwin Izilein has described the appointment of Sunday Oliseh as Super Eagles coach as the worst fraud ever committed by the the NFF under the leadership of Amaju Pinnick. Oliseh was appointed as a replacement for Stephen Keshi who was fired July 2015.
“The worst fraud that the NFF under Pinnick has ever committed on Nigerians is the appointment of Sunday Oliseh as the Super Eagles coach. Nobody was carried along, NFF president only met with him at a bar in London and announced to Nigerians, Oliseh will be the Guardiola of Africa. This is a man that has never coached any known club in his life. So, what was the yardstick for measuring his competence physically and mentally?” He asserted.
Izilein continued, “Amodu Shaibu was appointed for Eagles, NFF owed him, Christian Chukwu was there, NFF owed him, Stephen Keshi was there, the same thing happened, Austin Eguavoen others too, it was same story. What made Oliseh special that he got all the upfront payment? Such treatment is suspicious and nothing more than fraud, bias and wasteful spending.”
Oliseh also denied reports that he was paid upfront by the NFF after his unveiling in July 2015.
“When it comes to money, I am disappointed because based on what I’m being owed I should have stopped working, my assistants should also stop working. They make people think I was paid in advance, which is not so and am still waiting to be paid. The only thing is that I just decided not to go public with it.”
