The Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has unveiled a former Super Eagles captain, Sunday Oliseh, as the new coach of the Super Eagles.
Oliseh was inaugurated on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 in Abuja.
The new manager of the Nigerian national football team said he is ready 150 per cent to serve his fatherland and give his best to uplift the team.
Oliseh, at the unveiling ceremony in Abuja, said; “It’s a great honour to be coach of this great nation,”
“I’m not coming as a messiah. I’m coming as a man who wants to serve his country and give 150%.”
He added that “Gone are the days when we had individual players who can win games on their own. But we have potential.”
He also laid down the law to players of Nigerian origin on his requirements before they can feature for his team.
He concluded by stating that; “No player outside of first division in Nigeria or elsewhere will play for the Super Eagles. We will work together with the technical committee because if we fail, they fail,”
The former Nigerian international’s first assignment will now be to improve the Eagles’ fortunes, starting with a win against Tanzania in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in September.
