Egypt’s Game Not Why I Resigned – Oliseh


Former Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh has disclosed that his resignation was not as a result of the team’s double-header against the Pharaohs of Egypt in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier but a decision that’s of best interest to him.

Oliseh had been under immense pressure after failing to cross the group stage of the 2016 African Nations Championship in Rwanda coupled with his YouTube outburst, he believes that Nigeria has what it takes to beat Egypt at the Ahmedu Bello Stadium, March 25.

The three-time African champions must beat the Pharaohs at home in a bid to leapfrog the Hector Cuper led side, considering the fact that Egypt are top of group G with six points against Nigeria’s four points after two matches played.

Both countries missed the last edition of the AFCON, but Egypt have failed to qualify since winning their 7th title in 2010.

Meanwhile, Oliseh has revealed that he would sue the Nigeria Football Federation in court over defamation surrounding the controversial ₦20million for salaries and rent for his time as the national team head Coach.

The NFF claimed that they have paid Oliseh all outstanding salaries and don’t owe him anything, it still not clear who’s telling the truth.
