Latest reports say former Super Eagles Chief Coach Sunday Oliseh has resigned as gaffer of the team with immediate effect.
In a letter sent to the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, on Thursday, Oliseh tendered his resignation and thanked the NFF for the opportunity given him to serve the country in the capacity he did.
Oliseh, who took over the Super Eagles job in July 2015, has had a topsy-turvy relationship with the NFF and also had a run-in with a few players.
His tenure as coach was characterized by incessant rifts with the football ruling house that culminated in an eight minute rant on social media chiding agents, journalists and his assistants whom he claimed were working against him after Nigeria’s ouster at the 2016 CHAN tournament in Rwanda.
It was gathered that Oliseh sent in his resignation after collecting the back-log of his salaries which were owed him by the NFF.
Dr Mohammed Sanusi, General Secretary of the NFF, confirmed that the former Ajax Amsterdam midfielder has indeed resigned from his post as the coach of the Super Eagles.
“Yes, we have received a letter from him and I can confirm he has resigned as coach of the Super Eagles,” he said.
Sanusi said he cannot disclose the content of the letter yet because the NFF hasn’t met to deliberate on it, adding that the NFF officials are in Zurich for the FIFA congress, but will meet on the latest development soon as they are through with the meeting.
