NFF strongly behind Oliseh

27 July 2015, 15:55

Abuja - Executive board member of the Nigeria Football Federation Felix Anyansi-Agwu has stated that no amount of talk will make them ditch new Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh.

The NFF, two weeks ago, appointed Oliseh as the new Nigeria coach following the sacking of Stephen Keshi, a decision which is still being greeted with mixed reactions, especially with Oliseh’s limited coaching experience.

But Anyansi-Agwu, who is also the chairman of the NFF technical committee, says nothing can make them revert on their choice of Oliseh as they have already given him the job and says people should just allow him to work.

“People are entitled to their opinions but we know what we are doing and if you know what you are doing, you just have to keep the focus and don’t derail.

“There are so many misinterpretations that are being discussed once they are raised and they are never done.

“People should leave him (Oliseh) alone because we have already given him the job and there is nothing anybody can say at the moment that can change that.

“They should just allow him to work and support him. If they have any ideas they can share it but not people creating impressions and creating doubts when he has not even started the job,” he stated.
