Former Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh is set for his next big job at FIFA’s Technical Department ahead of the football event at the Rio Olympics.
Oliseh will next month (May) assume his duties and will undergo a series of training sessions with his colleagues at the FIFA headquarters in Zurich before the tournament proper in Brazil in August.
Oliseh managed the Nigerian national team for seven months before he resigned citing lack of support from the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF).
Oliseh had announced weeks ago that he would be involved in the Olympics working with FIFA.
He said: ‘Honoured to be appointed into the ‘new look’ FIFA Technical Department. Next mission; The 2016 Rio Olympics football,’
Oliseh has been keeping himself busy after leaving the Super Eagles job as he was seen recently in Germany where he went to watch the UEFA Champions League match between Bayern Munich and Benfica.
He was also in the stands to give morale support to Wildred Ndidi when Genk faced FC Brugge recently.
The football tournament of the Rio Olympics will hold between 3 August and 20 August and Nigeria is part of the 16-team roster.
