Sunday Oliseh looks up in spite of difficulties

The problems rocking the Nigerian national team in Rwanda seems to be on the rise as coach of the side, Sunday Oliseh has cried out.

Coach of the side, Sunday Oliseh says things have never been this bad for the players and technical crew of the team in a long time.

“To be honest with you, I won’t go into details but my boys have been working under extreme duress ever since we got here.

“It’s like driving a car with an empty fuel tank,” Oliseh told a press conference on Monday.

“This is the most poorly equipped Technical Team the Super Eagles have had dating back to 1993 when I first joined the team as a player and I think Nigerians should appreciate what we are doing,” The coach said.

“This is just an added difficulty we have to surmount and since the boys are human beings, let us be hopeful that they do not break,” Oliseh said.

Though Oliseh was not specific, his cry may not have been far from the fact that the bonuses of players for their last two games are yet to paid even as the team continue to wash and wear their training kits and jerseys as investigations reveal.

Injury free team

The coach, on the game against Guinea described it as a difficult one because the Guineans also will need to win to qualify.

“We were able to train with everybody today (Monday) and we hope there will be no reactions tomorrow so we can pick the right team for the game,” he said.

“We had problems in the first game because one of our most trusted center backs was suspended and we had to play without him, but there was a change in the second game because he was back.

“We have ambitions in this tournament and we are not here just to witness it. We have to modestly say we respect other teams but we can’t say we want to be eliminated. We also have ambitions.”

Nigeria play against Guinea on Tuesday needing just a draw to qualify for the quarter finals of the CHAN.

  1. I guess his cries were not heard as he spoke in riddles. He should learn to speak in plain language. Haahahahhahaahahah!!!

    But of a truth, the players no try at all! They could have put themselves, their careers & the nation in front 1st.
