Nigeria coach Sunday Oliseh has expressed concern as he claims players may shun future invitations to the team over poor treatment by the Nigeria Football Federation.
The former Nigeria captain has been speaking about the poor welfare package his team received following their elimination from the CHAN tournament, and he says he is scared players may choose to shun future invitations over non-payment of entitlements.
“We have to get our house in order and I have only one fear and I will share it with you,” he said. “I just hope that by the next time we send invitations out that players don’t start refusing to play for Nigeria and that is scary but it is real,” Oliseh said.
He further stressed that he will no longer work miracles and added that he has been receiving phone calls from his players over the non-payment of their allowances by the Nigeria Football Federation.
“We have to start thinking because I am not going to work miracles anymore, so I am just afraid that if we don’t put our house in order, we might invite players for the next qualifications and I am afraid because I am getting phone calls from them and they are still asking about what they are being owed,” he said in reference to the players’ winning bonus from last November’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Swaziland.
