Ex-Super Eagles Coach, Sunday Oliseh Drags Mike Obi For Saying He Doesn’t Know Anything About Coaching


    Former head coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, Sunday Oliseh, drags Mikel Obi after the former Chelsea star questioned Oliseh’s coaching ability during a podcast. 

    Mikel Obi, who was one of the most important players in the Super Eagles squad then, revealed the former manager was a nice person but didn’t know anything about coaching.

    In Oliseh’s latest interview, the former Super Eagles manager said, “I think the kid needs help, to be honest. There’s something I’ve not really shown much; I won the best coach for the first period of the Junior League, which is in the Dutch League.”

    “That was not voted by the press; that was voted by the players and the coaches of the league. I’m the only and the first coloured man from Sub-Saharan Africa to ever win this title with a club like Fortuna Duesseldorf, who had very average players who were able to qualify from the second division from last position to the first division, where they still are now.”

    “I don’t need to justify myself as a good coach or anything to the kid. I call him a kid because my son is 27 years old.”

    The manager proceeded, saying, “When he made this statement, I heard about it, but I couldn’t go on television and start arguing with someone like him. It’s degrading as a coach; you don’t go into the media and start arguing with your players.”

    But I would like to help the boy because I think he needs some help. You cannot become a legend with your mouth. You cannot achieve what you were not able to achieve on the pitch outside the pitch by talking on a podcast.”

    Oliseh was in charge of the Super Eagles for eight months in 2015. His tenure was marred with controversies, which led to the manager’s resignation.

    He revealed that he was laughed at which was one of the reason he left the Super Eagles job.
