NFF Set To Appoint Sunday Oliseh As Super Eagles New Coach

A top brass of the Nigeria Football Federation Federation
(NFF), who lead the panel that interviewed Sunday Oliseh Six
years ago for the Eagles job before Amodu Shuaibu was
appointed head coach has exclusively, told on
the condition of anonymity that most members of the NFF are
leaning towards the Ex-Eagles captain taking over from
Stephen Keshi and contrary to claims by the Keshi the NFF
are not persuading him to stay despite offering him a new two
year deal.

“It’s not a secret that Sunday Oliseh is the anointed one
among us at the NFF, and the reason is obvious six years ago
with Keshi in attendance as well,Oliseh came out top after an
interview session but we were scared of gambling on him
because he has no coaching experience prior to that
interview, we asked him to understudy Amodu Shuaibu but
he refused”

“The closest after him was then under-23 coach Samson
Siasia but at that time he was preparing the Olympic team for
the Beijing Olympics and we asked him to pick one as he
can’t combine both, he opted for the Olympic team, We had
no choice than to give it to Amodu Shuaibu”

“With all due respect to Keshi back then he came last in the
interview among them all, but before Samson Siasia was
appointed they were the only two in contention, so when
Siasia failed we hired him but we still have it at the back of
our mind that Sunday Oliseh will one day be our coach and
there is no better time for it to come to pass than now”
On claims Keshi was been persuaded to continue in his role,
our source said there is no substance to his claims.

“We have made our position known to Keshi two year deal
with certain clauses accept it or leave it,we can’t beg him or
persuade him because he is not doing it for free, he gets paid
for his job and if the conditions are not favourable to him we
have options and Oliseh is our top choice.”
