Nigeria football and Super Eagles supporters have taken to social media to express their views on the sudden departure of Sunday Ogorchukwu Oliseh as the National team head coach.
Oliseh resigned his position as coach of Nigeria’s Super Eagles, citing ‘contract violations, lack of support, unpaid wages, benefits to my players, assistant coaches & myself’.
While some Nigerians feel the former national team skipper is afraid of failing to qualify Nigeria for 2017 AFCON, hence his resignation, others say the outspoken and “stubborn” gaffer is right to walk away as the NFF lack the structure for any sound coach to thrive.
@SundayOOliseh with a few weeks to the very important Egypt game??, shows how much of a cowardly wimp you are. Good riddance you QUILT!!😑

Congratulations @SundayOOliseh. It’s never ok for employers to breach contracts & owe workers interminably. That’s been standard fare at NFA

@SundayOOliseh Not only is he not paid, then he has to defend every single decision he makes?! The Tech C’tee should just coach S/Eagles!!

@SundayOOliseh from Siasia to Keshi & now Oliseh. Nigerian football has lost its own Guardiola, Zidane & Lius Enrique. Wat a shame, #NFF#
