Former Nigeria national team coach Sunday Oliseh has revealed he has no intention of ever coaching the Super Eagles again.
Oliseh managed the Super Eagles between 2015 and 2016 before he threw in the tower due to some unresolved issues with the Nigeria Football Federation, which includes unpaid salaries. During a live video chat, Oliseh revealed why it will be difficult for a Nigerian coach to succeed as the head coach of the super eagles.
“The fact that I at this moment don’t feel to coach Nigeria again is nothing to do with my people, it has to do with the fact that the conditions that are there for Nigerian citizens who coach the super eagles are not the same that are given to foreign coaches, for that reason a Nigerian is doom to fail” he said.
In a previous video chat, the former super eagles coach lamented on how indigenous coaches were treated.
“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.”
Oliseh last coached a Dutch side, Fortuna Sittard in 2018, as they were promoted to the top division of the Netherlands League.
