The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has addressed the resignation of former Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh.
Oliseh in the early hours of Friday, February, 26 took to Twitter to announce his resignation as coach of the Super Eagles citing contract violations, unpaid wages and benefits to players and assistant coaches.
NFF in the statement insisted that they had done everything on their part to help Oliseh despite their financial constraint.
Oliseh has denied receiving any payment from the NFF, the NFF insists that they paid the sum of N20m to Oliseh a day before he announced his resignation.
“We find it strange though that, after complaints of non -payment, Mr.Oliseh waited to receive monies owed him before resigning,” the statement read.
“Two days before his resignation, he had passionately appealed that we unite as one force to fight the battle on the football field with the Egyptian national team. We had no idea he was selling a dummy.
The NFF further stated that they introduced Oliseh to their sponsors so the coach can have access to them and get to know the situation of things himself without the body acting as a middle man.
They commented on Oliseh’s claims that he fed his players from his own pocket at the 2016 Africa Nations Championship.
The NFF also blamed Oliseh for the resignation of Vincent Enyeama from the Super Eagles and also apologised to Nigerians for the whole controversy.
