In his Speech at the presentation ceremony in Lagos on Thursday when the Board of the Nigeria Football Federation led by its President, Mr. Amaju Pinnick, formally presented Oliseh to Globacom, Coordinator Business Solutions of the company, Mr. Ike Oraekwuotu, stated that Dr. Adenuga heavily supported the choice of Sunday Oliseh, adding that he is the right choice. “I am coming in to do my best and give, if possible, 150 percent all the time”.
Our presumptive coach along the Super Eagles Sunday Oliseh might be courageous within tim’s beginners compress seminar to really exclaim this out: “We can’t come out on top the following World Cup”.
According to him, gone were the days Nigeria had individual players who it depended on to win matches out of their own individual efforts. “But we have the potential and that is our belief and the players must know that it’s an honour to be invited to the national team”.
Following the appointment of Sunday Oliseh as the new coach of the national team, the Super Eagles on Wednesday. Talking to Sunday Oliseh, we are very excited, about his advancement. “As a member of the Federation Internationale de Football Association technical study group, he is vastly travelled and trained”.
He re-assured Globacom that the company’s investment in Nigerian football will not be in vain, stressing that, “We will get result in the coming years and our football we be back on track”.
“He needs to have a starting point after all he is not the first case we have seen in football and definitely will not be the last”.
The 40-year-old has signed a three-year deal and succeeds Stephen Keshi, who was sacked at the start of July.
While Oliseh has little management experience, having coached only Belgian lower league side Vervietois between 2008 and 2009, he does hold the Uefa Pro Licence and the NFF have every faith he can handle the challenge of coaching the Super Eagles. The immediate tasks for the new Nigeria will be a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier away in Tanzania in early September as well as a friendly some days later.
The previous coach had his contract terminated by the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) following reports that the former Mali and Togo manager had applied for the vacant spot at the head of the Cote D’Ivoire national team.
“There is no time to waste”.
