Why Oliseh resigned from Super Eagles job, Siasia takes over

The reasons behind the sudden resignation of Sunday Oliseh as Nigeria coach are gradually coming to town, top of which is sabotage by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) reports ITRealms.

Sources close to the former coach said he was uncomfortable with the level of sabotage in recent times especially as it concerned the next month’s crucial AFCON qualifiers against Egypt slated for March 25.

ITRealms recalls they Nigeria was to host Egyptian side on March 25 in Kaduna prior to new date now slated for Egypt.

News Express had earlier quoted top official close to Oliseh as saying, “Oliseh resigned as Super Eagles coach after he did not enjoy the right support from the Nigeria Football Federation.

“His resignation letter was addressed to NFF president Amaju Pinnick and he copied principal officials like the general secretary. He also spoke on the phone with the sports minister.”

Further ITRealms gathered that Oliseh resignation was not unconnected with his four months salary arrears in addition to a promised accommodation in the nation’s capital of Abuja.

Equally he was pained by the sacking of his personal assistant and allegations that NFF was making overture to former Cote d’Ivoire coach Herve Renard, who has since been appointed coach of Morocco.

Appointed the national team coach in July 2015, the former Nigeria's skipper Sunday Oliseh replaced Stephen Keshi.

Meanwhile, the NFF has named coach Samson Siasia an interim coach for the national team while Daniel Amakochie to assist.
