Former Super Eagles’ coach, Sunday Oliseh has been appointed as a member of the FIFA technical study group (TSG).
This will make it the second time Oliseh would be appointed to TSG.
The ex-Super Eagles skipper tweeted:
“Honoured to be appointed into the “new look” FIFA Technical Department. Next mission; The 2016 Rio Olympics Football”
Currently headed by an ex-Swiss international, Jean-Paul Brigger, the TSG’s priority is to observe teams in matches and training sessions and collect information, reports of which are made available to FIFA member associations afterwards as a development tool.
Though Oliseh did not reveal the details of his appointment, his first task as a member of TSG would be at the 2016 Rio Olympics football events.
