I Had Good Plans For The Super Eagles – Sunday Oliseh

Sunday OlisehEx-Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh has come out to say that he will never coach the Nigerian national team again.

The former player revealed that he took this decision based on his several unpleasant past experiences as manager of the country’s football team.

According to him, he does not want the job anymore because it even affected his health despite the lack of salary he was already battling with.

He added that he had good plans for the team but the fact that the job started frustrating him made it difficult for him to continue.

His words, “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 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.”

“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.”
