Lagos - Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has asked Nigerians to forgive his “error of editing” after receiving wide condemnation for releasing a video where he called his critics insane.
Oliseh, who claimed in the video that some of his former national team mates are accusing him for crashing out of the African Nations Championship, instead of supporting the team.
He also revealed that he never begged to coach the Super Eagles, and he rejected the offer from the Nigeria Football Federation twice before he finally accepted it.
That video did not go down well with most the football federation, sports writers and many football lovers, and News24 demanded an apology from the coach to Nigerians.
But Oliseh has explained that he was not referring to the 170 million football loving Nigerians, but only a few who always criticize him.
