Sunday Oliseh, former coach to the Nigerian Super Eagles has dragged the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF, on social media.
He calls for them to pay him and coach Loscuito what they are being owed, while they are still alive.
He also calls the association liars.
Oliseh said, “Hope the NFF will pay coach Losciuto & myself the huge amounts they still owe us without litigation whilst we are alive! Pray they listen!
For 5 months, Losciuto’s lawyers’ letters to D NFF have been ignored. Should CAS suspend Nigeria it is not his fault. B4 they lie 2 you again!”
Oliseh a Super Eagles ex-international star was appointed as National Coach to replace his former National team-mate Stephen Keshi, in July 2015.
NFF President Amaju Pinnick described Sunday Oliseh as the “Guardiola” of African football and assumed he was going to do with the Nigerian team what Pep Guardiola did for Barcelona FC and is currently doing at Bayern Munich.
Those assumptions were wrong as Oliseh didn’t meet up to the high expectations required of him and had to resign in February 2016 citing “unconducive working conditions” as one of the reasons for terminating his appointment, barely seven months into the job.
Part of his resignation letter read:
“Due to incessant Violations of our signed agreement (Contract) I am hereby informing you of my decision to terminate our working collaboration signed in July 2015….
Since so little help is being rendered me in getting the players to give their best and very vital conditions and advantages to the team….
These unconducive working conditions that my coaching crew and myself have to live with, your contractual violations and the interest of the nation necessitates that I tender my resignation and recourse to the termination of our working agreement.
Many thanks for the opportunity to serve my fatherland.
