Pinnick: Oliseh Must Manage Players Shortcomings

15 August 2015, 16:01

Abuja - With new Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh set to officially begin work on Monday August 17, President of the Nigeria Football Federation Amaju Pinnick has advised the former Nigeria captain that he must manage the shortcomings of his players when he finally resumes.

Speaking ahead of Oliseh’s first day at work, Pinnick reckoned that the Super Eagles coach must know how to deal with the shortcomings of his players, adding that his ability to do that will make a lot of difference.

“He (Oliseh) will have to manage the shortcomings of the players,” he said, “Your ability to manage their shortcomings will make a big human difference.

“You talking to somebody and the person obeys, that’s it. So once you have your relationship and when everything is purely defined you know what to do,” Pinnick posited.

Speaking further, Pinnick expressed confidence that Oliseh will handle such matters professionally.

“He’s a professional so he knows what to do and he knows what he’s doing,” Pinnick submitted.

Oliseh will officially resume on Monday, when the invited home based players are expected to start arriving the team’s Abuja camp ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania.
