President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, believes that Sunday Oliseh has the capacity to change Nigerian football style to that of Germany.

Oliseh replaced sacked Stephen Keshi as Super Eagles head Coach.

Pinnick remains undaunted in his belief in Oliseh in restructuring Nigerian football.

“He (Oliseh) has been talking about how to restructure our game pattern and that is what redefined German football,” Pinnick said during a radio programme.

“Their (Germany) playing pattern was restructured from the rugged football because it wasn’t giving them results and they had to restructure.

“Now they do tip-tap, the same as Bayern Munich. Also look at Borrussia Dortmund and look at every other team because they are all doing tip-tap and Oliseh will do the tip-tap.

“What he will do will go beyond coaching because he says he really wants to redefine football in Nigeria and one thing I have discovered about him is that he is very passionate,” Pinnick added.

Meanwhile, Director General of the National Sports Commission (NSC), Alhassan Yakmut, has disclosed that he did not frown at the recruitment procedure of the NFF in appointing Oliseh as Super Eagles coach.

“We met on Monday with the members of the NFF on the due process. So if talks are on, why should I frown at the recruitment of Oliseh as the next Super Eagles coach.”
