Is it not the same Enyeama that told NFF to go to hell when they summoned him to answer a query. I could remember vividly during Oliseh's interview with Brilla Fm, he defended Enyeama on that issue. Truth be told Enyeama has done great for this country but the dude got a very big Ego, Same problem Oliseh had while playing for the Super Eagle.

Moral of the Story: Karma is a Biatch. grin

Quick to pick sides, quick to judge
when there's an Enyeama who has NEVER had such a rift with any coach in over 10 years of service to Nigeria and an Oliseh who we can't say same for, especially as he has barely won anything of note, by all means I'll take sides and judge

Humility is the key to sustainable acievements. Enyeama should learn to be humble no matter what the case might be. This is not his first time of showing extreme pride.God demote and promote so he should learn to accept his fate

No need supporting either of them until we hear what exactly happened.
The different accounts we are hearing do not tally.
What differing account? He chose a new capt and the former capt got upset. I like Enyeama, but cmon bro. ..In this situation the Coach is within his right to name a new Captain. I feel bad for Enyeama but Boss na Boss. The buck stops with Oliseh as far as Eagles are concerned.

From all accounts that I have read, Enyeama just proved He is not worthy of the. Captaincy. Regardless of whether Oleiseh discussed it with him earlier or not it is not accept a anywhere for a team player to shout down a coach in a team meeting. What did He think He will achieve
Captaincy is not by number of years in the team, how can Enyeama openly question the coach and expect what

Well Enyema overreacted.. The team first before individuals, the coach cant be waiting for a player that turned up late.. Musa is consistent in his club more than Mikel and Emenike.. Moreover he could have given him th captain band tentatively waiting for the arrival of the almighty Enyema...

First off, I want all Nigerians to forget about qualifying for AFCON 2017, it won't happen with this rift.

Oliseh was wrong on all counts in this rift. The last player you should ever attack is the pillar of the team, the head capo, ask Didier Deschamps what Anelka did to him. Why pick on Enyeama? Enyeama has loyalists in that team that can and will rebel against Oliseh until he loses that job and they prove he was never meant to be a coach. Oliseh is displaying an arrogance he hasn't earned considering he's won nothing of note as SE coach.

And making Musa captain? Who will take orders from Musa? Is it Mikel, Emenike or the ousted Enyeama? Does Musa look like a leader? Apart from his scrawny nature, how old is he? Someone who can't even speak up when he's wronged, how will he speak on behalf of his team mates?

The only place Oliseh's myopic decisions will take he and that team is down. I just want him out ASAP cuz he's apparently not The Chosen One to bring sanity to our football.

I strongly disagreed with u on ur views , I am not in support of either the coach or the short stopper , but the comment u made about Musa , what u need to be a leader on the pitch is not dsame charisma that is needed to be a leader outside sport . Like you re mixing it up . Do u know that jayjay okocha was once the captain before he quit the national team? When jay jay was fresh in the the team , the thing he does best was to laughed at every scene , even when he failed to score in an empty net, he will just laughed it off ! For the fact that okocha took things lighter back then doesn't stopped him .but okocha grew to became one of the best midfielder in the world , and still he was d captain .and for Musa he can be better in fact any of the super eagle player can be d captain of the team provided they can shoulder d burden and stand up when it's necessary . Going by the Nff principles and Oliseh s appointment is to build a team for the future and he can choose his captain , a And for Enyeama , he's d best for now and he shld take things easy cos he has limited days to spend in the team . He would have done himself some good by completely staying away to mourn the mom and spend some good time with the family members , I think d fatigued of the burial ceremony has a lot to do with d attitude he has displayed . I will not blame Oliseh ... But d best way to handle the team is to keep the media away .

i guess you know Musa PERSONALLY. The way Nigerians talk sometimes,see as dis fool is talking as if he is SE camp member. Change is good sometimes. See what the status quo has gotten SE??nothing!!!. A radical change is good in any successful endeavor. Am not even really approving what Oliseh did though but only God and time can tell the outcome. So relax yourself!
see you. It was the status quo that gave them AFCON 2013. The only fool here is you, daft mofo. You can't build a team by destroying the foundation of the old team before the building on it. Enyeama was the wrong player to mess with. Even when Keshi was re-building his AFCON-WINNING TEAM, he didn't touch the core of Enyeama, Mikel and Yobo

Who are Enyeama's loyalist?

Is it Ahmed musa, Rabiu Ibrahim, Ighalo, Obiora, Moses Simon, Troost- Ekong, Leon Balogun, or Carl Ikeme?

Which one of these do you think will jeorpadise this opportunity giving to them to play for national team because of person wey don near retirement?

Abegi, i never see.

About Musa as captian, it is the best choice so far. Why?

Nowadays, National teams preffer choosen best players as captains than bench warmers like... you know now.

Are Enyeama's loyalists the only set of players Nigeria can offer?

I am not in support of how Oliseh treated Enyeama, but to paint Enyeama as the messiah of Nigerian football is very absurd. Enyeama hasnt played the last two matches and Nigeria didn't lose!

If Mikel and Emenike don't like the idea of Musa being captain, they can quit the team. The world can always do without the best. I believe Oliseh knows this by his own experience!.
oliseh has already said it that he didn't want someone who is. Thinking of retirement to be the captain of the team and looking at it musa has never disobey any call from the nff so he his still d only one who can be d captain of the. Sentiment apart enyeama on his side must have an ego cos only him had quarrel with siasia,keshi and now oliseh......
Re: Oliseh Vs. Enyeama And The Impending Doom by MrTA(m): 7:33pm On Oct 07, 2015
I like Oliseh and I want him to succeed. I really do. I was a huge fan when he was a player.

I feel a new coach's first duty is to unite the squad and I dont think that was looking to do that. This looks like he was just trying to flex his muscle and show who is boss but this is not club football. Even in club football you can only get away with such if you already have trophies and titles with you.

So far he hasnt shown any man management skill especially when it comes to the senior players and has succeeded in diving his squad already. I really hope he can get his act together quickly because this episode could be his downfall.

Of course, as men we do not have power over the things that happen to us but we have absolute authority over the way that we react to the things that happen to us.

Enyeama's reaction is a total disappointment. I used to see him as a mature and humble chap, but he's clearly not close.

And in case you don't know, everywhere in the world when it comes to footballing matters the manager is the boss

And for all of you scolding Oliseh, Thiago Silva was not informed by Dunga when Neymar became captain. Rather, he heard it on the news like everyone else. And yet Silva still turns up and plays with all commitment. That's an humble and mature chap who values representing his country over perpetuating his own ego.
Dey dia dey yarn wetin you no sabi...

Neymar is a global superstar. Neymar is on the way to threaten Pele's Brazil all time goal scoring record. Neymar practically carried Brazil through the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Brazil collapsed after he was injured.


Does Ahmed Musa have the same influence in the Super Eagles?

Talking of manager vs player row, Felipe Scolari got booted out of Chelsea the moment he decided to estrange the key playing staff in Drogba and John Terry.

By the time, this madness Oliseh is displaying begins to manifest consequences, both he and Amaju Pinnick would be chased out of Nigerian football.

So Oliseh can now saction a player for being "rude" eh? I think we need to see Taiwo Ogunjobi and ask how Oliseh and Taribo used to "challenge" authorities while playing for the SE.
Oliseh should tread softly otherwise, he ll go the way of Samson Siasia. Siasia problem started when he the same Enyeama and Mikel complained of the security situation in Congo and both were hammered by Siasia. He later paid for it dearly at the end of the day anyway.

One thing I remember again is that, Oliseh was said to have ego issues as a player, I was young then but I knew that time, I think he is just trying to tell Enyeama "I am boss" which Is as a result of overbloated ego, Enyeama is a legend in his own rights, so no need to make him bow to you, it's not as if you both can't work well as friends or mutual respect atleast. undecided

TheSuperNerd:
There seem to be about 3 different variables to the "story" of what actually took place.

But One thing is certain. OLISEH DID NOT APPLY WISDOM AS REGARDS THE APPOINTMENT OF A NEW CAPTAIN.

He was too much in a hurry to announce Musa captain but he forgot some of the laws of power.

Before that "unwise announcement" Enyeama was "substantive" captain. The report from Vfactor does not include the fact that there was 'actually' some kind of 'election' before Enyeama hit camp and Musa was elected ahead of Mikel. How that happened still beats me.

Oliseh would have "waited" till he had a "tete-a-tete" with Enyeama. He should have given Enyeama that "respect". ENYEAMA WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO FIND OUT IN PUBLIC......... THAT WAS ENOUGH HUMILIATION. THAT WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oliseh should have called Enyeama into his room, sat him down, asked how the burial went, say he's really sorry about his loss, and then go on to gradually "break the news" of his plan to make Musa captain and tell him why. He could even ask Enyeama to please express his thoughts and they would be having a long conversation with Oliseh chipping in how much he appreciates Enyeama's achievements and "unquestionable" loyalty (COME ON!!!!! WE'RE TALKING ABOUT A GK WHO WON THE AFCON AS "SKIPPER" BUT ALLOWED THE "ACTUAL" SKIPPER, YOBO LIFT THE CUP...... WHAT IS WRONG WITH SOME PEOPLE?). Oliseh would assure him he still remains "Nigeria's no.1" but must have the future in mind.

BUT DID OLISEH DO ALL THESE?? NO WAY!!!! HE JUST HAD TO RUSH IT AND LIKE SAFARIGIRL SAYS, "THE TEAM MIGHT HAVE TO PAY THE PRICE BY MISSING THE AFCON, AND WAITING FOR RUSSIA 2018......."

I like Oliseh just as I liked Keshi despite all the flaws BUT LET TRUTH BE TOLD........ OLISEH MESSED UP BIG TIME!!!!!!!

On whether Musa makes a good captain, I'll say making him captain is "NOT REALLY MY PROBLEM". My problem is the "Followership", "The cabal".

Safarigirl has a point, you need someone assertive and influential.

But Vfactor also has a point, "size determines not leadership".

BUT TO PUT YOUR POINTS TOGETHER, let me tell u a short story.

When I was 15yrs I was appointed Assistant-head boy (elect) in S.S 2.
Boyyyyy!!!!! I was "small in size" (I'm 5ft 11inches now oooo.... Abeg! No even think am o *smiles*).

I had the intelligence and genius that goes with so high a position but I also had "guts". During the interview, the Vice-principal (academics) and Vice-principal (admin.) Said this, "Son, you're the smallest but obviously one of the top 3 smartest of all 5-7 candidates, with your SIZE do you think you can command such authority?"

I said, "Sir and ma, Leadership is never about size. But about heart and I believe that I possess the charisma to lead. I didn't nominate myself. Others did because they know what I've got"

Unknown to me, they've carried out private research and found out that I've been "class captain" from Jss1-Jss2 and SS1-SS2. They were impressed with their findings despite "my small stature".

Note: I was not supposed to be made either head boy or Asst.head boy based on size. Goodness me!!!! The others were "big".

Final verdict: I was eventually made Asst. Head boy despite my size (but thanks to my class influence, assertiveness with colleagues as noticed in the school's findings, Intelligence and more)..... BUT "I WAS TOLD PRIVATELY" by one of the officials that I would have been made "head boy" but for my size....................
Was I sad? No way!!! I UNDERSTOOD.... On one hand my size was ignored but on another, it became my bane. BUT ON THE WHOLE, MY LEADERSHIP QUALITIES SHONE THROUGH TO GET ME PICKED AHEAD OF 3-5 OTHER "BIG GUYS".



So in Musa's case, leadership goes beyond loyalty to coaches. Leadership requires you being able to inspire others, to lift your team off the ground when they're struggling, assertiveness, massive influence, an ability to strike some kind of fear in the opponents (Okocha, kanu, oliseh, keshi, christian Chukwu, Yobo, and lately Enyeama were intimidating figures not really because of size but because they were "highly" respected in their positions) and much more.

Musa is respected but "how highly is he rated" by our opponents or how seriously is he taken by them?

I like Musa but I think It's kinda weird making him captain. But hey!!! It was kinda weird making me "Asst.Head boy" too. Mehnnn!!!! U needed to see me then. But I did just great and left as one of the school's most outstanding prefects till date. *Big Smiles*


Maybe as weird as Musa's appointment as captain is, THIS MAY TRIGGER A NEW DIMENSION IN MUSA'S GAME AND CONFIDENCE IN BIG MATCHES. WHO KNOWS? After all, it's said that with great power comes great responsibilities.


IN CONCLUSION, OLISEH WENT ABOUT THINGS THE WRONG WAY.......... THERE'S OBVIOUSLY STILL SOME BAD BLOOD IN THE TEAM AND I HOPE WE DON'T PAY THE PRICE WITH ANOTHER AFCON MISS.
Safarigirl's points may not go down well with some but I think it's because she's looking at the "Big picture"...... THE AFCON AND THE WORLD CUP QUALIFIERS.

LET'S HOPE THIS BAD BLOOD DOESN'T LAST LONG IN THE "SUPER EAGLES".........

and has Enyeama planned any coup? or did he tell Oliseh that he was not qualified to coach him? what other side are you expecting to hear from unless you want to hear lies from the media as usual. From the nff offcial twitter handle, we were told that there was a rift in the camp between the two parties and that it has been settled while Enyeama remains in camp after he was kicked out by Oliseh. What this infers it that Oliseh wanted to be a boss instead of a leader and nff had to wade in to help an inexperienced coach who has never coached any national team before. The so called Pep Guardiola of Africa.

I don't support any of them, but I think olise should have given enyeama his own respect...


We don't know musa as the captain of super Eagle, why address musa as the captain?


If na u sey u go agree?



I no go gree. But there's something I ve learnt why working in an organization: never challenge ur boss, even if you don't agree with him. You could talk to him privately, but not challenge him in front of ur colleague. He'll feel pressured to asert his authority, which in many cases would be the harsh way.

Oliseh should have shown more respect! But Enyeama should not have challenged his boss.

[b]If the reports I am getting from camp is anything to go by, then Enyeama was clearly in the wrong.

Trouble started when they had a meeting after the Tuesday training session, which Enyeama did not participate in because he was busy talking with a member of the crew eventhough he knew that only Carl Ikeme is the goalkeeper available. So Oliseh called a meeting and said he'd like Ahmed Musa to captain the team for the Congo clash. That was where trouble erupted. Enyeama would have none of that. He stood up in front of everyone and was said to have rudely interrupted the coach's speech at this point, the Lille keeper insisting that he was the captain, not Musa. Enyeama was even fighting for Mikel, most senior player in the team to be captain for friendlies not Musa when it became obvious that he would not be playing.

This interruption apparently riled Oliseh, who ordered Enyeama to let him (Oliseh) address his players in peace. But Enyeama continued talking, raising his voice at the coach.

When Oliseh could not take it anymore, he ordered that Enyeama leave the venue of the meeting as he felt the keeper was undermining his (Oliseh's) authority.

When Enyeama refused to leave, Oliseh asked for the goalkeeper to be forcibly removed from the Verviers Hotel camp by security men.

Why should Enyeama not accept the verdict of the coach? Hell was not let loose when Neymar replaced Silva as captain of Brazil. There was no arguments with the coach when Mascherano was replaced by Messi as Captain. What right has Enyeama got to oppose his coach? Anywhere in the world once a new coach takes over he decides who will be his captain, that's standard, if he does not choose you, then you have to sempe. Super Eagles is not your father's property.

Ahmed Musa will captain the Eagles just for the game VS Congo DR ironically Enyeama won't play that game so why was he causing trouble.

Enyeama was quoted to have made alot of caustic statements.


Enyeama said this words "Who is Oliseh?" So Oliseh sent him out of camp to show him who the boss is.

Enyeama told Oliseh what have you done that I have not done for the Super Eagles, what did you win that have not won,who are you? #Crazy

Enyeama told Oliseh how long were you in the national team? This is my 13th year you can't come in here and start misbehaving #Crazy

Anyone supporting Enyeama on this issue is supporting indiscipline. NFF on their part overruled Sunday Oliseh,what message are they passing by undermining the manager's authority?

And no, Enyeama did not apologize to Oliseh. He even went on instagram to say that Oliseh insulted his mother, something that never happened. Dude is very childish.

NOTE: I have my sources in the Eagles and it all points to the fact that Enyeama was clearly in the wrong.
