08 July 2015, 12:14

Lagos - Former Nigeria captain Sunday Oliseh is set to become the next Super Eagles coach, News24 can authoritatively confirm.

The 40-year old former Nigeria international is in advance talks with the Nigeria Football Federation over becoming the Super Eagles substantive coach, replacing his former Nigeria teammate, Stephen Keshi who was sacked on Saturday.

Oliseh, though yet to have any cognate coaching experience, but had stints as Sports Director at Belgian side, Eupen and coach of another Belgian lower division side, Vervietois.

The Glass House had promised immediately after Keshi’s sack that they would name a replacement ‘within the next one week or two’, and News24 can confirm that they are presently in talks with the former Borussia Dortmund of Germany midfielder.

It has been gathered that the announcement will be made within the next one week if talks continue to progress as expected.

Oliseh had a successful playing career, starting out with Julius Berger of Lagos, before being snapped up by RFC Liege of Belgium.

He would go to represent Regianna and Juventus in Italy, FC Cologne, Borussia Dortmund and VFL Bochum in Germany, and Genk in Belgium.
