Oliseh don’t know how long it will take to get Eagles back on track

24 August 2015, 11:09

Abuja - Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has said he cannot put a timeframe for when he will get the team up and running again, as he admits there is so much work to be done.

Speaking to News24, Oliseh admitted that the Super Eagles have not had consistency as it regards playing personnel, so he will need time to get things right, but admitted the players have shown improvements from the first time he trained with them.

"I can't really say when we will have a formidable team," he told News24.

"We started training on Monday (last week) and I put my hands on my head and said 'oh God there's so much work to do'.

"But we did a video work that Monday and when we trained on Tuesday ideas like 'this is good' in one day.

"So they should be the ones telling you what it is but I must say the boys are very motivated and they improved in one day and I wonder what will happen when we work together in weeks.

"But then we need time because the basic problem we have as a crew is that, when you take over at a club, you have some regular players and you work around those players, maybe like seven, eight, or nine of them and you may choose to keep six and bring in three new faces.

"But we are coming and starting from zero and over the last year, when you look at our players and their positions, it has always been changing and for us now, it's not that easy and I can't tell you right now how long it will take but we'll give it our best shot," Oliseh posited.
