Former Super Eagles captain Sunday Oliseh has resigned as coach of the Super Eagles with immediate effect.
In a letter sent to the Nigeria Football Federation on Thursday, Oliseh tendered his resignation and thanked the NFF for the opportunity 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 tiffs with the football ruling house that culminated in an eight minute rant on social media chiding agents, journalists and his assistants whom he claimed where working against him after Nigeria’s ouster at the 2016 CHAN tournament in Rwanda.
Supersport.com scooped that Oliseh sent in his resignation after collecting the back-log of his salaries which were owed him by the NFF.
Dr Mohammed SAnu$i, General Secretary of the NFF, confirmed to supersport.com that the former Ajax Amsterdam midfielder has indeed resigned from his post as the coach of the Super Eagles.
“Yes, we have received a letter from him and I can tell you he has resigned as coach of the national team (Super Eagles),”he said.
“I can tell you the content of the letter yet because we haven’t met to deliberate on it. We are in Zurich for the Fifa congress but as soon as we are through with the meeting, you will be in the know,”SAnu$i added
