After his controversial resignation in February, former Super Eagles gaffer, Sunday Oliseh has been appointed into FIFA’s (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) new technical department.
The ex-Super Eagles midfielder took to his twitter handle very early on Monday morning to make the announcement.
He will also work at the football tournament of the 2016 Rio Olympics in Brazil.
The 41-year old said: “I feel honoured to be appointed into the “new look” FIFA technical department.
“Next mission: The 2016 Rio Olympics football tournament in Brazil. We thank God for the elevation and opportunity to represent Africa again.”

Oliseh resigned from his position as Super Eagles head coach in February, citing bridge of contract and lack of pay as the reasons for his exit.
In March 2013, Oliseh was appointed by FIFA as a member of its technical study group. He was part of a technical team that evaluated the Borrusia Dortmund versus Liverpool game in the Europa League quarter-finals last Thursday, April 7.
