NFF To Fine Sunday Oliseh $30,000 For YouTube Rant

Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh is to be handed a hefty fine that could be as much as six million Naira (about $30,000) after he blasted perceived critics in an extraordinary rant on YouTube.

Oliseh described his critics as “insane” and declared war on them following speculations surrounding his future as Super Eagles coach on the back of the country’s disappointing showing at the recent CHAN in Rwanda.

Oliseh has since apologised to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for his outburst.

Sources close to the sports ministry said sports minister Solomon Dalung has begged for the coach to be given a second chance, but he should also be hit in the pocket by the way of a fine.

“Oliseh will now be fined by his employers for as much as six million Naira after the sports minister advised he be given a second chance,” said a source.

The minister said he has spoken with Oliseh and “we can’t take such things in the social media seriously”.

Nigeria face Egypt in two crucial AFCON 2017 qualifiers next month.

They are two points behind group leaders Egypt after two rounds of matches with only group winners guaranteed automatic qualification to Gabon 2017.
