There has been so much speculation and guess work on the nature of Coach Sunday Oliseh’s illness that there are even insinuations that it could be the “handiwork of his enemies”
Since he assumed office as coach of the Super Eagles, the former Super Eagles star has not spent quality time with the team due to an ailment that had seen him going in and out of hospital
On Sunday we reported that the coach who led the Eagles to a disastrous outing in Rwanda did not come back with the team because of what close associates termed “fear for his life”
Today, ReportersLab gathered that if Coach Oliseh was a player, he would not have been signed by Nigeria for “chronic injury” problems.
A very authoritative source told us yesterday that the NFF did not investigate properly before signing Oliseh as he is “not fit”
“During the World Cup in Brazil, Oliseh was part of the technical study group, yet he did not write down one sentence because he was reported ill while he was in Brazil.
His colleagues virtually helped him to write his report.
“At one stage he was vomiting so much that we thought he will die. It was okay for us to ask him to take time out to treat himself while cover up for him.
“Am sure the NFF did not know he was not medically fit, if not they would not have gone for him, “our source insisted.
This exclusive revelation has put paid to insinuations by sympathizers who laid his illness on the doorstep of “enemies” who want to eliminate him from the national team job.
With CHAN out of the way and the Nations Cup preliminaries in March, the NFF will need a fit Oliseh to take charge of the challenging double header against Egypt.
