The Nigerian Football Federation has revealed that it has reached an agreement with Sunday Oliseh to become the new Super Eagles head coach.
Oliseh will be replacing Stephen Keshi, who was sacked last Sunday for “lacking the required commitment”, stemming from his alleged application for the Ivory Coast head coaching role.
“An offer has been made and there is understanding but we have to work out the final details of the agreement in a few days,” said Felix Anyansi-Agwu, chairman of the NFF technical and development committee. “Of course, the executive board has to give approval for his appointment based on the final terms to be agreed.”
“He has bought into our vision and objectives towards the development of Nigeria football,” NFF chairman Amaju Pinnick added. “He will command the respect of the players and we trust he has the temperament to work harmoniously with the technical and development committee, the technical directorate and the technical study group.
“On our part at the NFF, we will give him all the support to succeed as we have been giving to all our coaches.”
What do you think? Do you think Sunday Oliseh is the right man for the job?
