Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh has slammed his critics and has described them as insane, in a video rant posted on his website on Sunday.
The former Nigeria international has been under severe criticism following the Super Eagles’ failure to progress beyond the group stages of the 2016 African Nations Championship in Rwanda, something which obviously hasn’t gone down well him.
Speaking in the video, Oliseh stated that only insane people would dare seek to question his future as the Super Eagles coach.
He said: “I am addressing this insanity that has befallen some of our critics,” he began in the first part of the two-part video.
“I call it insanity because you must be insane to start seeking plebiscite on the future of the national team coach of Nigeria because we lost CHAN.
“With all due respect, CHAN is probably the least important tournament that is held by CAF and it is a tournament that weighs more on the strength of the leagues against one another and you can see how far Congo has gone and you can see how far TP Mazembe goes in the Champions League.
“What then should be done to the coaches of Egypt and Ghana who failed to qualify? I understand we are sad to lose, but this constant insanity that each time the Super Eagles loses, some critics go on the air and start seeking a plebiscite on the future of the coach of the Super Eagles, this is madness,” he stated.
The 40-year old has been under-fire since after the CHAN and he has not been taking the criticisms lightly. Nigeria next play Egypt over two legs in March in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
