Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick has vowed not to employ a foreign coach to take charge of the Super Eagles again after Sunday Olisehâ€™s handling of the job and resignation on social media while he was away at Zurich for FIFAâ€™s elections.
Amaju, who christened Sunday Oliseh â€˜Africaâ€™s Pep Guardiolaâ€™ upon his appointment last year says the era of giving indigenious coaches a chance to head the Super Eagles is over, saying Samson Siasia will take over the team temporarily while the NFF look for the perfect â€˜foreignâ€™ replacement.
â€œAfter this Sunday Oliseh debacle, we have definitely turned the corner. We are now going to start shopping for a well grounded and qualified foreign coach to tinker the Team. Enough is enough. What we have learnt is that there is a world of difference between being a good coach and being a good managerâ€, he told Hotsports.tv.
While announcing his resignation on Twitter, Oliseh said â€œDue to contract violations, lack of support, unpaid wages, benefits to my players, assistant coaches and myself, I resign as Super Eagles chief coach. I feel fortunate, blessed and eternally grateful for having had the honour to play, captain and coach this great nation of ours, Nigeria.â€
But according to reports the NFF are planning legal action against Oliseh citing he broke contractual obligations after he resigned without giving a monthâ€™s notice plus in his contract he was told to live in Nigeria and given rent but refused to live here to perform his coaching duties.
