The pressures associated with handling the Nigeria national team may have caught up with Super Eagles chief coach Sunday Oliseh as media report claim the gaffer is indisposed and would be absent as the home-based Eagles this weekend tackle their Burkina Faso counterparts in one of the CHAN matches across Africa.
According to Sports Newspaper, Sportinglife Oliseh has sought and gotten approval from his employers, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to attend to his health after he hinted the federation’s president Melvin Amaju Pininck that he needed to see his doctors urgently in Belgium.
The report claim that Oliseh has officially sent an e-mail to the federation’s Secretary General, Mohammed Sanusi who confirmed that he received the coach’s request to be left out of the Burkina Faso game on health grounds.
The NFF Scribe, however kept sealed lip over the contents of Oliseh’s e-mail report which he said was confidential.
It is not expected that Oliseh’s absence will affect the Eagles negatively as Coach Salisu Sanni has been on top of the preparations for the League stars who are hoping to make it to the CHAN tournament to be staged next year in Rwanda.
