Revealed: How Oliseh sold NFF a Dummy


There is no need crying of a spilled milk but taking a look at events surrounding the resignation of Coach Sunday Oliseh is a worthwhile venture. 

In Nigeria terms, the oga kpata kpata of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) yesterday gave a little insight of what Oliseh was like few days to his resignation. He didn't sound like he had plans to resign,two days before his resignation, he had passionately appealed that we unite as one force to fight the battle on the football field with the Egyptian national team. We didn't have an idea that he was selling us a dummy, Pinnick said. More on this story when you continue.......

Even though NFF sees Oliseh's resignation immediately after receiving his salary as a film trick on them, Pinnick said the institution bears no grudges against the former Eagle's captain. 

Amaju Pinnick, also threw eggshells on the occupiers of the Glass House in Abuja, the NFF, responding in a 25 paragraph statement from its Communications Director, Ademola Olajire said that it gave Oliseh all the support and enabling environment to succeed. It also discountenanced statements credited to Oliseh that the football-ruling house was setting booby traps for him to fail and thereafter sack him like other Nigerian coaches including Stephen Keshi and Shaibu Amodu. Commenting on Oliseh’s accusation of non-payment of salaries and allowances to him and his assistant coaches, the NFF said: we find it strange though that, after complaints of non -payment, Mr Oliseh waited to receive monies owed him before resigning. 

 “For the avoidance of doubt, Mr. Sunday Oliseh RESIGNED and was not SACKED. We bear no grudges against the coach and wish him well in his future endeavours” 

The NFF also said it would not allow Oliseh’s tirades derail it from ensuring that the Eagles acquit themselves well in the looming AFCON 2017 qualifier with Egypt in Kaduna. “We have now moved swiftly beyond the issue of the resignation of Coach Oliseh and like responsible business -minded administrators, we are now thinking about the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, with the immediate business being the hosting of the Egyptian national team in Kaduna and playing them in Egypt towards the end of next month (March)
