UPDATE:


Sunday Oliseh has explained succinctly the major reasons for quitting the Nigeria senior national team, the Super Eagles eight months after being appointed, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Oliseh who had been in a running battle with his employers over what he termed uncondusive working conditions told Completesportsnigeria.com that he was irked by the underground moves by the Nigerian Football Federation to sack him and the constant violations of his contractual agreement.

Oliseh was irked by the fact that the President Of the Nigerian Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick tried to hire Frenchman Herve Renard soon after the Home Eagles crashed out of the group stages of the African Nations Champions.

"They had their motives and what I did was in the best interest of the country," Oliseh began.
"While I was coach of the team they tried to hire Renard who turned them down citing three major reasons," Oliseh told Completesportsnigeria.com in the wee hours of Friday.

"When I sought their aid to effectively carry out my duties I was ignored and instead of the helping me getting the players to give their best and placing them in a very good conditions at an advantages to the team play, they had plans to derail the progress of the team's chances.
"The most important objective is for the Super Eagles Of Nigeria to qualify to the next AFCON and the World Cup 2018,"

Completesportsnigeria.com also got a copy of from the resignation letter Oliseh sent to the NFF (published below).


OLISEH'S RESIGNATION LETTER


Dear General Secretary of NFF,
Object: Letter of Resignation.

Due to incessant Violations of our signed agreement (Contract) I am hereby informing you of my decision to terminate our working collaboration signed in July 2015
The most important objective is for the Super Eagles Of Nigeria to qualify to the next AFCON and the World Cup 2018.
Since so little help is being rendered me in getting the players to give their best and very vital conditions and advantages to the team play are also being sacrificed coupled with non redress of the aforementioned despite my several e mails and others, seeking your aid to effectively carry out my duties were ignored.
These unconducive working conditions that my coaching crew and myself have to live with, your contractual violations and the interest of the nation necessitates that I tender my resignation and recourse to the termination of our working agreement.
Many thanks for the opportunity to serve my fatherland.

Sunday Oliseh
Chief Coach Super Eagles of Nigeria

Sunday Oliseh

Chief Coach Super Eagles of Nigeria
Re: Oliseh Resigns As Super Eagles Coach! by TheSuperNerd(m): 4:17am On Feb 26, 2016
AfricanFootball.com confirms this news also.


It's true the NFF didn't give him the required support but Oliseh knew the conditions he was coming to face afterall, Keshi and others before him faced worse.


I think Oliseh's resignation at this particular time is
cowardice. He's just afraid of failure and the truth is I don't see the Egyptians beating us even with Oliseh in charge because our players are currently on fire and are quite motivated to make a statement for
themselves. All he needed to do was what Siasia
did in Senegal with our U-23 team last december. Siasia faced worse. He just needed to stay focused
against the odds.

So Sir Oliseh... Why have you decided to run?? Scared of failure? Not man enough to handle all that most of your predecessors faced?


Maybe he wants to preserve his record of 1 loss in
official and friendly matches so that history will remember him as a coach who quit despite having moderately good record based on results alone in his first 14 matches or so.


In my own opinion, Oliseh should not have led Nigeria at the Chan tournament because he was still ill. He wasn't fully recovered and didn't know the best players based on what Salisu Yusuf (his assistant) monitored while the home-based team camped in Nigeria.

Yes, reports say he was in communication with the
team but fact is he was not on ground to see the
players train and perform. That's partly why Oliseh
didn't even know his first choice center-back pairing
at the CHAN. He kept switching players in a position
that required stability and understanding between
two defensive partners.
He also missed it when he picked Ibenegbu ahead of Usman for the first two matches of the tournament in the AMF position.
He also missed it in picking Aggreh ahead of Ezekiel
Bassey. All these positional/tactical mistakes which
Yusuf would have curtailed because he was "basically" in charge of the team in Nigeria while
Oliseh was receiving treatment in Belgium. (Losciuto was there but Salisu knew the players better and should have been consulted by Oliseh...... But No way!!! Oliseh came in and rocked the boat).


As for the NFF, I thought they said he's the messiah
so why suddenly turn their back on him?
Oliseh shot himself in the legs shaa.... This current chaos was always bound to happen from the moment Oliseh showed us he lacks man-management skills. I always knew it was a matter of time before he clashes with the same NFF who termed him the African Pep Guardiola


Time for Nigeria to move on... Nigeria's Super Eagles is FAR BIGGER than just one man, in this case, Oliseh.
I don't want a coward-like personality handling our senior national team. A man who can't face the heat should stay out.


Wish the NFF guys could also quit and leave our
football alone. We need real soccer technocrats.
I'm
so sick of their "entropy-inspired disorganised (dis)
organisation"



Long live The Super Eagles....

This coach Sunday Oliseh is a joke, @ first he went on Youtube to rant, and now he went on twitter to resign, what is he trying to tell us 170 million Nigerians, or is he trying to tell us that he is a twenty-first century coach.

ROTFL.

Just like Baba Bubu, it is easy throwing criticism when you're outside. All it takes is to wear the shoes,then you'll know its not beans.

It takes more than pride and Sturbborness to coach the super eagles. Heck it takes more than that to be a leader.

Make e remain for Belgium. I only wonder who the next Clown NFF will select will come from.
