Ex-Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh has said that the decision by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to sue him is an opportunity to expose the football body.
He said he was ready to meet the NFF in court after the federation threatened to sue him for quitting his job without prior notice to his employers, and also accusing him of breach of contract.
But Oliseh said:
“They said I was paid for three months (December 2015, January 2016 and February 2016) and half-year rent for July-December 2015. But we will see who is telling lies
“Since they are prepared to expose themselves, I will help them further. My lawyers are studying the reports, and when we meet, we shall know who breached our contractual agreements.”
Oliseh further spoke on his eight-month tenure as Super Eagles coach.
“My time there was a big lesson and unless a holistic change is made in the administrative level, it will be difficult.”
Meanwhile, former international, Henry Nwosu, has described the resignation of Coach Sunday Oliseh as the best thing for Nigeria’s football.
Oliseh last Friday resigned as coach of the Super Eagles stating, “contract violation, lack of support, unpaid wages, benefits to my players assistant coaches and myself,” as reasons for dumping the team.
Speaking to The Guardian on Monday, Nwosu, who wondered why Oliseh took that decision, however, asked if it was possible to have two masters in a ship?
“I think Oliseh resigned because that was the way he wanted it. He sees himself bigger than his employers and it is not possible to have two masters in a boat. What he did as far as I am concerned is very good for the country and it is best for us”
