Oliseh Is The Wrong Choice As Super Eagles Coach – Onigbinde

Chief Adegboye Onigbinde says Oliseh, from the outset was a wrong choice for the Eagles coaching job.

“The first issue is about his appointment, he claimed he didn’t beg for the job, in other words, the NFF begged him. And I begin to ask what qualities did the NFF see in him and begged to have him lead the Super Eagles?

“I still feel it is a big slap on the country to appoint a Nigerian or a foreigner who has never handled any club or a big team to handle the Super Eagles. That is an insult, and now the insult is now being complicated.

“Oliseh is now calling his critics insane. I watched the video and at a point was shedding tears for Nigerian football but we deserve it. Since he got this job, he has been going to Europe for treatment, shouldn’t the NFF have verified his health condition before being appointed. Now he has the gut to insult everybody,”Onigbinde said.

He noted that Oliseh failed to demonstrate professionalism after the CHAN 2016 debacle .

“You can imagine a coach coming out a day to the commencement of the African Nations Championship that his players are not well fed and all that, what kind of result do you expect from that kind of coach?

“The question now is, will this not affect our chances in future competitions? Now we are causing more confusion and destroying the team further.

“That is in the hands of those managing Nigeria football. I have made several enemies speaking the truth. The fact is we have administrative problems bedeviling our football,” the former Trinidad and Tobago U-17 handler said.

Oliseh, it will be recalled, took over from sacked Stephen Keshi last July and has since played 11 matches with two losses once in a competitive game, five wins and four draws.

Nigeria will face Egypt in a double header next month in its bid to qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
