EX-NIGERIAN international, Sunday Oliseh has signed a three-year contract as head coach of the Super Eagles.
Oliseh was unveiled on Wednesday in Abuja, as handler of the senior national team by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), after the sack of coach Stephen Keshi for applying for the job of Cote d’Ivoire.
The former Borussia Dortmund player will be assisted by Jean-Francois Losciuto, Salisu Yusuf and ex-international Alloy Agu, who serves as goalkeeper’s trainer.
Speaking at the event, NFF president, Mr Amaju Pinnick likened Oliseh to Spanish coach, Pep Guardiola, just as he expressed confidence that the Delta State-born trainer has the wherewithal to succeed.
“I can tell you that we have just signed our own Pep Guardiola. He is Africa’s Pep Guardiola, and I have every belief that he will succeed. On our own part we will do everything humanly possible to make sure that Oliseh succeeds by giving him 100 per cent support,” Pinnick stated.
Oliseh who holds a UEFA Grade A coaching licence, will face his baptism of fire in September this year, as the Super Eagles head for Da-res Salam to face Tanzania in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier.
