Lagos - The Nigeria Football Federation has warned Super
Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh to avoid a repeat of a video outburst where the
manager called his critics insane.
The NFF, after an executive committee meeting in Abuja acknowledged
Oliseh’s apology, but insisted that the statement was unwarranted and
unbecoming of a National Team Coach in both regular and social media.
“Executive Committee reviewed the outing of the Super Eagles
at the recently –concluded 4th African Nations Championship and the events that
followed, and rebuked Head Coach Sunday Oliseh for his unwarranted statements
unbecoming of a National Team Coach in both regular and social media,” NFF said
in statement made available to News24.

made it clear that similar infractions would not be tolerated in future.
“In line with global best practices, the Committee decided
that Coach Oliseh MUST henceforth report to the NFF General Secretary and the
Technical and Development Committee, and should be ready to defend his entire
program before the Committee, including invitation of players and training
Oliseh, among other things in the video, also claimed he was
approached by some journalists for money in exchange for favourable stories
about the coach, a development that sparked wide criticism.
