Chief Adegboye Onigbinde has berated Sunday Oliseh, former Super Eagles Head Coach, over his recent outburst, describing it as un-patriotic.
“I thought he said he loved Nigerian football and wanted to take it to the next level? Why saying that no coach with good intention will survive as Super Eagles manager?” queried Onigbinde on Tuesday.
Onigbinde, who regretted the employment of Oliseh in the first place, said that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) never consulted widely before appointing him.
“He was not even supposed to be there in the first place but they employed him. Saying that no coach that will come after him will succeed is the high point of non-patriotism. I sincerely think he is taking this issue too far; he should realise that Nigeria comes before all of us.
“The country will still post-exist all of us, so for him to still comment on what happen gives him out as being not matured on the job. Come to think of it, he left the job, not that he was sacked,” Onigbinde noted.
“Oliseh should have known that the job he took comes with leaving the post at any time; tomorrow, he can still come back to the post. He should be very, very careful over what he says.”
It will be recalled that Oliseh resigned on February 25, 2016 few weeks to Nigeria’s crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Egypt in Kaduna and Alexadria, citing breach of his contract.
