Oliseh apologises to NFF

Sunday Oliseh

Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, on Monday evening sent an apology letter to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) over his conduct since the country’s exit from the African Nations Championship (CHAN).

Oliseh, whose team were eliminated in the group phase of the competition, had criticised the NFF for abandoning his team in Rwanda.

The former international had described critics calling for his sack as “insane” and also aimed jibes at his former teammates reminding them that he was begged to coach the nation.

“I didn’t beg for this job,” Oliseh said.

“I didn’t even want this job. I refused it twice and it took the intervention of a highly respected friend of mine; who was in government, for me to concede and take this job.”

The NFF revealed last week that they had sent a query to the 41-year-old for his utterances and demanded an instant apology.

And according to Africanfootball, Oliseh in return has yielded to the demands of his employers.

“Oliseh has just sent a letter apologising for his utterances and actions.

“He said he is sorry, that he never wanted to attack the NFF or embarrass them, but rather he wanted the whole world to know they have not been given money.

“He also said he has been very frustrated after the heavy attack on him and his team after their exit from the CHAN.”
