Oliseh ordered to Abuja by NFF

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) have ordered Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh to appear before their technical committee on Friday in Abuja to defend his call-ups for next month’s crucial AFCON qualifiers against Egypt.

A top official informed that Oliseh will on Friday, February 26, also be expected to discuss his game plan for the double header against the seven-time African champions.

Nigeria will welcome group leaders Egypt to Kaduna on Friday, March 25, before a reverse fixture in Egypt two days later.Oliseh had planned to travel around Europe to monitor the country’s top stars ahead of the showdown against Egypt, but this has been truncated as he has yet to receive any approvals for his spying mission.

The Eagles training camp for the AFCON qualifiers is expected to open with players from the domestic league two weeks to the home game in Kaduna.

Meanwhile, ailing Eagles coach Jean Francois Lusciuto has begged to be paid at least part of what the NFF owe him in salaries for him to proceeds to Belgium for further treatment after his surgery in South Africa last month.

It was gathered that the Belgian coach is owed five months’ pay, which totals 10 million Naira at two million Naira a month.
“The whiteman is really down – his stomach problem, which needed surgery in South Africa, has persisted and he now wants to fly to Belgium for better treatment,” a top official disclosed.

“He has said he only needs his salary for a month to do that and he has written several mails to the NFF, but sadly he has not received any reply.”

Incidentally, Lusciuto was left stranded in Lagos when the Super Eagles returned from the 2016 CHAN in Rwanda and he had to find his way back to his base in Togo, where he lives with his wife.
