Lagos - Super Eagles team coordinator Pascal Patrick has
debunked reports coach Sunday Oliseh will not be joining the home based Super
Eagles squad for the CHAN tournament in January.
There has been concerns over whether Oliseh would be joining
the team, as he is yet to personally take charge of the team in any competitive
fixture since his appointment, with reports that his assistant, Salisu Yusuf
has been delegated to handle the side.
Speaking from the team's camp in Abuja, Pascal refuted the
reports, insisting that Oliseh will join them when he has been declared fit by

"I don't know where they got the report that the head
coach (Oliseh) will not be joining us. That is not true. He's the head coach
and he will be joining us soon.
"He wasn't feeling well the last time and his doctors
have been taking a look at him and I can tell you that he will join us once
he's declared fit.
"The story that he won't take charge of this team is
not true. Sunday Oliseh is the head coach and he will lead us to CHAN,"
Pascal stated matter-of-factly.
The Super Eagles have been training in Abuja for one week,
but will leave for Pretoria, South Africa, in the first week of January, where
they will train before departing to Rwanda.For
