SUPER Eagles Head Coach, Sunday Oliseh has joined millions across the world to felicitate with friends, fans and family to celebrate the yuletide season.
The Eagles gaffer who is still away in Belgium where he is attending to issues around his health took to social media to wish Nigerians and his fans a Merry Christmas.
“May the celebration of The Birth Of Jesus Christ bring you all kinds of unprecedented blessings. Merry Christmas … Sunday Oliseh & Family,” the Nigeria Coach tweeted
Meanwhile, Oliseh who has been instructed by his doctor to take more time off work to recuperate fully before resuming with the Home Eagles will join the team in their training camp in South Africa.
In his absence, assistant coach Salisu Yusuf has been handling the team currently camping in Abuja.
“I’ve been asked to recover fully before I join the team but defintely I will be with the team well enough before their pre- tournament games start,” Oliseh told 366football.com in an earlier exclusive chat.
A warm-up match against another CHAN-bound side Cote d’Ivoire has already been fixed for January 9 in Pretoria.
Nigeria, who placed third at last year’s tournament, are drawn in the same group with Niger, Tunisia and Guinea.
The competition begins on January 16 in Kigali, Rwanda with Nigeria opening their campaign two days later against Niger.
