Green added that Oliseh took the decision to drop the suit
against the NFF because the former coach knew he has no case.
“Oliseh showed a lack of heart in the way he left. And he
was purely grandstanding when claiming some persons spoke to him to drop a law
suit, when he knew from the beginning that he had no case.”
It would be recalled that Oliseh, while announcing his
resignation, claiming “Contract violations, lack of Support, Unpaid wages,
Benefits to my players, Asst. Coaches & myself,” as his reasons.
He spent seven months on the job.For
