The coach of the Super Eagles, Sunday Oliseh has challenged the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, to fire him if they are not pleased with his performance.
Oliseh, who has been under much criticism after the home-based Eagles were eliminated early from the 2016 African Nations Championship, has defended his record, claiming that his team was undermined by poor welfare.
“A contract was made out, I signed a contract with the NFF; if you’re not happy about it, okay, we come out and shake hands,” Oliseh said in a part of a video he posted on YouTube.
“But I will remind you that this is the 14th game I have been in charge of the Eagles. We have lost only two games with one an official game. So where is this failure that some people are trying to sell to Nigeria unless you mean Oliseh and his team must win every match.
“Even the current World champions Germany can’t boast that. We are still on track; we have qualified for the group stages of the World Cup and are in the running for the 2017 African Nations Cup.”
“In so many ways we are sad but it’s a question of opinion.”
“I’m sad and with such news of the impending sacking of the coach. We have not failed, my predecessor was judged after he failed to qualify for the Nations Cup.”
