‘Oliseh is a pathological liar’

22 February 2016, 21:31Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has been labeled a pathological liar after failing to name the journalists he claimed asked him for bribes to write favourable stories.

The former Nigeria captain was angry at critics, who he called ‘insane’ for faulting him after Nigeria crashed out of the African Nations Championship in Rwanda.

Oliseh, among other things in two videos, also claimed he was approached by some journalists for money in exchange for favourable stories about the coach.

As a result, the Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) on February 10 gave Oliseh a 7-day ultimatum to name the claimed journalists.

With 12 days gone by already, and Oliseh yet to back his claims with evidence, SWAN has now labeled the former Juventus player an unreasonable liar.

“Sunday Oliseh has displayed to the whole world that he does not have the capability of being trusted with the Senior National Team of a great football playing nation like Nigeria and lacks the integrity whatsoever as an individual to continue to parade himself as the head coach of the Super Eagles,” read a statement from Secretary Andrew Abah.

SWAN also asked the Nigeria Football Federation to “warn him to desist from making frivolous allegations that he cannot substantiate”, insisting that it “”would no longer tolerate any of such allegations and would not hesitate to blackout any individual or organisation that accuses any of its members falsely.”

It could be recalled that immediately after expiration of the 7-day ultimatum, News24 contacted SWAN to know its next move.
