The NFF Technical Committee will meet today in Abuja to discuss an immediate replacement for Sunday Oliseh after the Delta born coach tendered his resignation in the early hours of Friday morning.
The coach who as at yesterday told Nigerians he was working hard and scouting players to ensure Nigeria beat Egypt in the double header AFCON qualifiers next month, shocked Nigerians by going on Twitter to tender his resignation citing ‘unfavourable working conditions’ and ‘contract violations’ as reasons for quitting the job.
In his letter sent to the NFF General secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, and dated February 25, 2016, he said.
“Your contractual violations and the interest of the nation necessitates that I tender my resignation and recourse to the termination of our working agreement,”
Former Super Eagles coach and technical director Shuaibu Amodu and Olympic team coach Samson Siasia have been reportedly penciled as temporary replacements to take over for the must win match against Egypt next month.
Siasia posted a short stint as Eagles coach between 2010 and 2011. He was fired after he failed to qualify the country to the 2012 AFCON in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea while Amodu has twice helped Nigeria qualify for the World Cup in 2002 and 2014.
