Lagos - Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has posited that he
understands and is motivated by the concerns expressed over his lack of
coaching experience as he gets set to announce his first list of invited
players for upcoming games.
Concerns continue to grow over his lack of ‘proper coaching
experience’, which has prompted many to doubt his coaching capability, as his
only experience as a coach came seven years ago when he was briefly in charge
of Belgian third division outfit, Vervetois.
But Oliseh says the doubts expressed can only motivate him
and his crew ahead of the task of handling the Super Eagles.

“Many out of love for our fatherland have expressed their
doubts in my coaching crew and my ability to coach and take to a higher level
the Super Eagles. This is understandable to an extent but definitely an added
motivation,” Oliseh said.
“I am fully aware that though this is the honeymoon period
of the job as we are yet to play a game, there are all kinds of other uphill
difficulties ahead of us,” he added.
He is expected to announce his first list of invited players
– all home based – in the first week of August ahead of the CHAN qualifiers
against Burkina Faso, and a week later, a list of overseas based players for
the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania.
