Lagos - The latest outburst of Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has been condemned by a huge number of sport lovers and I share their views that it’s shameful and a complete disgrace to the manager and employers alike.
But I am not surprised because it is just another version of what the former Super Eagles captain is capable of doing, or has not repented from doing.
In his latest outburst, Oliseh laid emphasis on being forced by the Nigeria Football Federation to coach the Super Eagles. Oh my world! Now that’s the ‘insanity’ I see in the video.
“I didn’t beg for this job, I didn’t even want this job, I refused it twice,” Oliseh said, and the NFF forced or begged him to accept?
The insanity of the NFF forcing an inexperience Oliseh more than TWICE to coach a senior national team like the Super Eagles is very obvious. I also see the insanity of Oliseh being very childish to reveal or expose his employers to a more deadly criticism and attacks.
Now the question is… where is the competence of the Amaju Pinnick led NFF, as well as their baby coach? I strongly demand
an explanation from the federation on this.
I watched the video over and over again, and I see, among other things, an Oliseh that has refused to grow from where he took off seven months ago, that’s the honest truth.
Even my senior colleagues Bimbo Adeola, Solomon Ajuziogu and Emmanuel Tobi could not hide their disappointments.
I have taken time to advise Oliseh here, but he won’t listen. In August 2015, I vividly remember telling him what to expect from his new position. You will not be begged or forced by Nigerians like your employers did you. You will be told in plain words when you disappoint Nigerians.
That is the consequence of being a Super Eagles coach which he have an option to quit.
But they say quitters never win and winners never quit. So he should face reality of the job and control his temperament.
Oliseh should not see the Super Eagles job as the end of the road, his predecessor – Stephen Keshi - coached Mali and Togo, who says Sunny can’t coach Belgium. But certainly not with this attitude.
I am not an enemy, but I’m an unbiased and a great fan of my darling Super Eagles. Even when the team is losing my passion and interest still remain. I’m as loyal to the Super Eagles as Arsenal fans to the London club. So anything that affect the Nigerian side is my business big time.
When the NFF are ready to replace Oliseh, I plead they do not force a coach to manage the team. They are not working for free. Insisting on Oliseh to accept a job, as revealed by the coach, shows weakness and desperation on the part of the NFF.
As my colleague Kelani Oladapo Babatunde wrote, I also demand Oliseh to APOLOGISE to Nigerians, and while doing so, he should remember we will NOT beg him, or pamper him when we feel he lets us down even if it’s a friendly against a Nationwide League team.
