16 March 2016, 13:04Israel Ojoko

Lagos - The Nigeria Football Federation says it will soon send a letter to former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh to demand a refund of ten million naira.

Oliseh, in a new video on Monday announced that he has dropped a lawsuit against his former employers, but the federation will soon throw the next punch in the battle that has ensued between the two parties since his resignation in February.

Chairman of the NFF Technical and Development Committee, Chris Green said Oliseh should a expect a letter from the federation demanding a refund of the five million naira paid him in lieu of his accommodation in Nigeria, and the February 2016 salary (another five million naira) that should serve in lieu of his one –month notice of resignation.

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.
