Abuja - Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has returned to
Europe and will remain there to monitor Nigerian players, the Nigeria Football
Federation (NFF) have confirmed.
This development will come as a surprise to many Nigerians
as recent Super Eagles coaches have all been based in Nigeria, but Executive
Board Member and Chairman of the NFF Technical Committee, Felix Anyansi-Agwu
has confirmed that Oliseh will monitor the activities of Nigerian players from
his base in Europe.

“He (Oliseh) has gone back but temporarily,” Anyansi-Agwu
said in a radio interview.
“He hasn’t gone finally because you know we have a game
against Tanzania very soon and most of our players are in Europe.
“So he has gone to make adequate arrangements and also to
monitor the progress of these players because the European leagues have not
started because most of them are on training tours.
“So he has gone there to make arrangements and work and the
Nigeria Football Federation is one hundred percent aware of his activities and
movements so we should give him time to settle down,” Anyansi-Agwu posited.
Meanwhile, Oliseh is expected to hold talks with Liverpool
forward Jordon Ibe with the view of having the 19-year old represent Nigeria.
