Super Eagles head coach, Sunday Oliseh faces possible suspension or demotion by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), following comments he made after his team’s exit from the 2016 African Nations Championship (CHAN).
It will be recalled that the former Eagles midfielder alleged that he spent over $4,000 of his personal money to carter for the team in Pretoria, South Africa as the NFF were unable to provide for them.
The football federation had since rubbished the report, and are furious that Oliseh is passing the buck, after an unimpressive outing in Rwanda.
Speaking to CompleteSports on Monday, a top NFF official said: “Oliseh should have taken responsibility for the Eagles crash and move on with preparations for the all-important AFCON qualifiers against Egypt, but he chose to make the NFF the scape goat with his comments that his players were not motivated.
“His behaviour after the exit of the Eagles from CHAN is an infringement on the code of conduct for national teams and he cannot claim ignorance of this because he was given a copy of the COC when he took the job as head coach of the Super Eagles.
“We are waiting for his technical report and reply to the query before he faces the technical committee who will recommend what action to be taken against him.
“The truth be said, Oliseh has yet to show signs that he is capable of taking the Eagles to the expected heights. We might ask him to work under a technical adviser or resign if he cannot but we can’t risk leaving him to experiment with our dear Super Eagles.”
